If you haven’t visited a National Park or Monument this year during this their 100th Birthday, here is your chance. We will be driving from Morrison to Pine Junction were we will travel over hills of snow (or maybe not, thanks to El Nino) to the town of Florissant. Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (established in 1969) protects a rich deposit of fossils. We won’t have time to explore all 14 miles of trails, but it will allow us to take a step back in time for a few hours. From Florissant it is onto Salida where we will spend the next 2 nights at the Tudor Rose B&B. Saturday morning we head off to Great Sand Dunes National Park for a day at the beach. This will not be your typical beach because they are the tallest sand dunes of North America. Sunday spend some time relaxing and reflecting on why we love Colorado before heading down Hwy 50 towards Canon City.
What to bring; Warm cloths, hat and gloves, it may not feel like winter, but this is Colorado and weather can change with the next cloud that passes by, Walking shoes or boots, Cooler for cold drinks and lunches. Sun Screen, Water bottles.
If interested in going please contact Ira and Tammy for more information.
