Itinerary: Meet in Office Depot Parking Lot in Bodo Park at 7:30am Nov 12 and leave by 8:00. We will view the K-T boundary at two stops, then continue to the Bisti / De-Na-Zin Wilderness Area. We will hike approximately 4 miles roundtrip across relatively flat terrain to view and discuss the geological processes that produced the hoodoos, pedestal rocks and “cracked” or “alien” eggs. We will return to Durango by 5 pm.
Transportation: Carpool in 4 or 5 Personal Vehicles from the Office Depot parking lot.
Meals: B.Y.O. Lunch, snacks and drinks. We will eat lunch on the “trail”.
Note: Bring plenty of water, hiking sticks and wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots – lots of uneven ground and loose footing.
