The Earth Beneath Our Feet
A Special Archaeology & Geology Hike to Eagle Rock Shelter
Led by Glade Hadden and Dr. Dave Noe

Colorado Canyons Association invites you to join us for a journey into the past with celebrated BLM archaeologist, Glade Hadden, and locally famous geologist, Dr. Dave Noe!

This special guided hike will tour the Eagle Rock Shelter archaeological site in the Gunnison Gorge NCA, which is becoming one of the more significant archaeological sites in North America! Along the way, we'll follow the winding canyon of Lawhead Gulch, which contains ancient tidal channel and river deposits as well as dinosaur tracks and a stone tool working site. Prepare yourself for amazing canyon vistas and an informative, once-in-a-lifetime learning experience!!
