Co budeš dělat

We will hike 3 miles (round-trip) up to an old quarry on North Table Mountain where gem-bearing geodes are. Along the way, we will have seven stops outlining the 60-million-year volcanic history and other unique geological features of this area, with plot twists aplenty! With the guidance of a professional geologist, you will also be able to observe and identify a variety of rocks and minerals in ways many would not consider. You will enjoy cool gems, picturesque views, and great company. By the hike’s end, you will learn how to appreciate, read, and view rocks as not just hard things but as nature’s “black-box storytellers!”
Other things to note
After your booking, I will send you exact coordinates of the parking/trailhead area we will meet at. Please do not hesitate to contact me any time, before the hike, with specific questions and concerns!

I hold B.S. and M.S. degrees in Geology. I have worked as a mining exploration geologist in Minnesota and Colorado. Currently, I teach geology and chemistry at the college level. I have a combined 7 years of leading field trips for classes and university student organizations. I am a passionate "storyteller" of the secrets the Earth holds, in the form of its natural beauty! As a teacher, I never tire of spreading my love of geology to everyone I can!

Kde budeš

North Table Mountain outside of Golden, Colorado. We will start at the bottom of a trailhead. We will end at an inactive quarry where the gemmy geodes are housed in preserved, 60 million year old lava flows. Elevation gain from the trailhead to the quarry is approximately 500 feet.

Wow, what a gem of a hike, adventure, and guide. Mark is fabulous - passionate about his knowledge and curiousity, shares easily and in easy to digest and understand story telling fashion, very caring and considerate. Rocks and hills and mountains around me in Boulder and the Rocky Mountains have so much more meaning to me and I a able to be so much more curious and inquisitive than before now that I understand a bit more. The ways Mark shared his knowledge will enable me to remember things maybe forever as I continue to look around me in nature with more depth and insight. This was a great hike and very enjoyable in the winter month - good sun for warmth and lighted exploration. I learned so much more tha I realized I would. As Mark says geology is a combination of many sciences.

I was looking for a guided hike and thought this one looked interesting but it was so much more than I expected. Mark is a college Geology professor and could basically answer anything about the area and thru in fun jokes too! The scenery was breathtaking and the hike is basically customized to your interests and abilities with so many possibilities! At the top Mark helped me look for special Geodes and we found a really cool one in addition to some other interesting ones! Mountain Top experience!!! Highly recommended!
