Што ќе правите

We’ll hike trails in beautiful Red Rocks Park, beginning among its famous towering sandstone monoliths. Your hike will be greatly enhanced with a professional geologist guiding you. We’ll examine the rocks up close for clues as to their origins and history, surrounded by stunning mountain vistas opening to the great plains below. We’ll see 200 million years of earth history as recorded in the rocks, well before the uplift of the present-day Rockies. We’ll see igneous and metamorphic rocks 1.7 billion years old, overlain by younger sediments deposited beginning with the uplift of the ancestral Rockies, and see how subsequent sediments accumulated under environmental conditions that changed dramatically time and again. In the distance, we’ll trace younger sediments spanning much of the age of the dinosaurs. Using a “hand lens,” we’ll examine the rocks closely for mineral composition and textures that reveal the nature of the rocks and their otherwise untold journey. Principles we’ll learn here will transfer to many other geologic settings to enhance your enjoyment of the underlying geology wherever you go.

Bill was an absolutely wonderful guide! His knowledge of and passion for geology were inspiring and he really took the time to explain things. While the Red Rocks area is already stunning, getting to see it while learning the "insider" knowledge about how those beautiful rocks were made was extra special. I highly recommend this tour!

Bill is a great geologist and it was really interesting learning more about the land and how it forms. It was nice that we were the only ones booked for the tour so it felt more personal. Thanks Bill!

Bill was very enthuisastic about sharing his knowledge about geology and the Red Rocks. Bill also went above and beyond in perosnalizing the tour to explore the topics I was most interested in.

This was an absolutely amazing experience!! I was lucky enough to be the only one booked for my time slot, so I was treated to a one on one personal tour thru the geologic history of the Earth. The tour guide, Bill was prepared, professional, and I could tell he was both a true expert and cares deeply about the subject matter. Very educational and so much fun, because I've always been fascinated by the stripy lines on the hillsides. I feel like I'll be able to recognize the geologic features of places I visit in the future after taking this hike. As for the hike itself, I did this in the middle of August in the AM and it was H O T (for Denver) outside that day. Def bring hat and sunglasses if going in the summer, and layer up with tons of sun block, but if you like walking outdoors, and can handle a little bit of stairs up and down here and there the hike is pretty tame. Tons of great scenic photo ops too! I'm soooo glad I did this while in town, highly recommend for anyone who is into lite hiking and geology!!

Do this first, you'll learn so much about red rocks and the surrounding area, you'll see things through a different perspective and every other hike you take after this will be improved with your new knowledge of geology!
