Що ви робитимете

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!

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.

If you have an interest in how the area was formed, you should take this hike with Mark. He’s super knowledgeable and you’ll walk away knowing far more about the geology than before. Overall a great experience.

Mark is very friendly, likable and considerate. I really enjoyed the knowledge part of the tour and the way he engaged us in with the surroundings as we were learning. The hike was decent with some good heart rate variability and the stops feel perfectly timed for the trek up. The best part for us we’re the minerals. It was fantastic. Thanks for a great hike Mark! And we learned some neat things too.

we had a great time with Mark! we were the first to do this hike in the rain. make sure you bring extra socks and shoes and a poncho/windbreaker if you do it in that kind of weather! it would have been even better if it were sunny 🌄⛰️ beautiful views and geodes!

This tour was very informative. It is definitely a hike so come prepared, however, the pay off is down right breathtaking. The sites are beautiful and seeing the Geodes were great while also learning what makes them and how to identify them. The tour guide has a passion for geology and it shows. I would definitely recommend booking this tour. You will not regret it!
