Was ihr unternehmen werdet

On this interpretive geology hike we will walk 2.8 miles through the volcanic rocks of Golden's North Table Mountain, accompanied by an experienced geologist who will teach you all about the rocks and the geologic history of the Rocky Mountains. These rocks formed from lava flows that erupted out of a volcano over 60 million years ago! You will learn to identify rocks and minerals and see details in the rocks that would never be obvious to the untrained eye. The hike ends at a site where geodes with zeolite crystals can be viewed within the rocks! With an experienced geologist as your teacher and guide, your hike will be an entirely different experience than if you went to the park alone.
(Note: Park resources are protected. Geodes can be viewed, touched, and photographed, but collecting of geodes is not permitted.)

This felt more like a hike rather than a study of geology. 95% hike with a small field of geodes at the end. Rox is very knowledgeable, and she made the experience very interactive... however we didn’t see many exciting geodes.

This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Denver. Roxana was very knowledgable and made sure to cover the basics, so if you're not a geology expert, fret not!! Also, while the hike was a bit of work for someone like me who doesn't regularly exercise, it was more than manageable. What also made this special aside from Roxana were the people that you'll hopefully get to meet assuming other groups book for the same time.

Dr.Roxs is amazing! This was a very informative hike! Great amount of breaks to catch our breath, especially with being new to the altitude. The trail is great!

First Airbnb "experience" we've tried and definitely would recommend - easy to talk to and listen to, she's obviously an expert who enjoys sharing her knowledge & passion for geology with others - tour started and ended exactly on time, extremely interesting - we'll be checking out her other tours the next time we're in town!

Roxana was amazing, she took her time and it neither felt to slow or too fast. She answered all my questions (some silly) and really explained the geology of the area. I feel like I have a better understanding of geodes and unique area Golden CO is!
