Details

We'll take a Sunday morning visit to this south metro area open space with striking red stone Fountain/Lyon geological formations. We'll hike the short Coyote Song and Swallow Trails. May look for geocache GC263PQ; contact leader if interested in Geocaching, and get the smartphone app from geocaching.com. (Want to learn more about geocaching? See this kid-friendly video at http://www.meetmeatthecorner.org/episode/a-kids-introduction-to-geocaching .) Depending on weather and interest we may also take an optional foray along the Grazing Elk Trail. Friendly, quiet, leashed dogs OK. This is a short trip and we should be done before noon, but bring lunch. If you like the area you can also visit other nearby parks on your own. Register with leader.



Notes

Bring drinks, raingear, and sun protection.
