Co budeš dělat
While anyone can hike a trail in the National Park, there are many geologic features that the inexperienced eye cannot see. With a knowledgeable geology guide by your side who can tell you all about the geologic features in the rocks, how the landscape was formed, and the geologic history behind the rocky mountains, your hike is a completely different experience than if you just went to the park alone. We will study the rocks up close and learn to identify minerals and other features using a provided "hand lens" tool. We will also enjoy scenic views along the way! (Stats: Hike is 5.6 miles round trip with 900 ft of elevation gain and reaches an elevation of 10,000 ft. Trail is of moderate steepness, with some sections that are very rocky.)

We will hike along a trail in Rocky Mountain National Park and study geologic features along the trail. Many of these features are not obvious to the untrained eye. As a geology guide, I can point out features such as metamorphic textures, striations in the rocks carved by glaciers, elongated mineral grains, and intrusions of younger rocks into the older rocks. Your hike experience will be completely different with a geology guide.
