Voyage to a Mid-Ocean Ridge with Steve Van Slyke

June 14 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$15 – $20

As you descend the trail to Lynx Creek, your Highlands Center geology guide will point out features in the rocks that tell a story of how oceans grow as new crust is formed and continents “drift” to accommodate that growth. How is it possible that rocks from the bottom of an ancient ocean now rest a mile above sea level and so far inland?  Join us and find out. These trails have variable grades and roughness. This walk requires stepping off trail onto rocky terrain.  Please contact us if you have concerns.
