Details

This is a triple joint event (SM-DN-CWF). For kids and adults of all ages. Starting at the YMCA the group will snowshoe a variety of trails in a lovely forested area near Tuxedo Park that is latticed by Mill Creek and Big Thompson River. The museum features fascinating and enlightening extensive exhibits on Rocky Mountain National Park's geology, climate, ecosystems and human impacts as well as publication sales. Its huge viewing window displays panoramic scenery including Moraine Park and magnificent mountains. It is an outstanding location to view glacier-carved valleys that leave side lateral moraines and terminal moraines - accumulations of rocks and earth piled up by the grinding movement of glacial ice.
