When Ice Ruled the Park
August 24, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm$70.00
Much of today’s magnificent scenery in RMNP is attributable to the erosional effects of ice more than a thousand feet thick. This course will begin at the terminal moraine of an ancient glacier near the entrance station and traverse up Fall River Road through its U-shaped canyon, into its cirque eight miles away. We will observe depositional and erosional features along the way. On the return trip along Trail Ridge Road, many interesting glacial and periglacial features will be pointed out at several stops (rock glaciers, felsenmeer, patterned ground, and sackungen).
