Geology hike to the "crater"
Bob Hickey will lead this GARNA geology hike to the Salida “crater” in the Arkansas Hills on Saturday, April 11. It is a moderate, 8.5 mile round trip hike through pinon/juniper/ponderosa forest to a geologically interesting point in the Salida volcanic field. Beautiful views of Salida and the Sawatch Range will reward at the top. The pace will be leisurely, but expect up and down terrain, and 1,000 ft gain on the way in and 600 ft decrease on the way back. Bob is an Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area volunteer naturalist; engineer by vocation, local geologist by avocation.
The hike outing will be most of the day, from 8:00 am to approximately 4:00 pm The cost is $5.50 for GARNA members and $8.50 for non members. Space is limited, pre-registration is required by visiting http://garna.org/events/geology-hike-crater/. For more information, please call GARNA at 539-5106.
