Event description

Description

The jumbled mass of the Wonderland of Rocks covers twelve square miles of intriguing landscape. On this mostly off trail, cross country hike we will explore historical sites, be exposed to geologic oddities in the form of arches, patterns of patina rock patches resembling ancient figurines, a mosaic wall of quartz and the classic Astro Dome and "Fang Rock". Bighorn sheep may be sighted as well. Please come prepared for some easy rock scrambling as we navigate through uneven, rocky terrain during the exciting exploration of this unique and special landscape.
