    The earthquakes in Oklahoma last week scared me out of hiding here at TW. It just took me this long to get the power back on.

    OR I was in Houston. And I'm lazy.

    Whichever.

    So many different formations and colors - fascinating.
    When I first got there it was cloudy and then while I was out walking around the sun came out and the whole ground started to sparkle

    How was your geology adventure this weekend?

    Might be up that way in the fall. Lisa do you have any tips on what to make sure and see, or what's not worth it? I'll probably have the kids in tow, they have good endurance but their short legs are still a factor.

    I'm sure Keith can chime in too...
    the area is very hilly, I don't know why but I was expecting it to be flatter. There are some steep hills to climb on a couple of the trails. Bring good, sturdy shoes as the lava is very uneven and sharp. Sandals would be a no-no. And there isn't much shade or protection from the wind

    I hiked the north crater trail (very steep, dirt path), devil's orchard (flat, sidewalk), tree molds (less steep, dirt path, pretty easy) and broken top trails (less steep) - that's about 7 miles in two days. I didn't have time to see the caves. All very intersting, I spent a lot of time just inspecting the different formations.

    The campground was nice, very clean....but no campfires! :eek: And the park is a LONG way from the nearest city so gas up before you get too far from the interstate

    Thanks, Lisa!

    I need to quit being lazy and post pics from our hike up Tent Rocks. Maybe contribute something useful to the thread.:eek:

    Be sure to make time to go into the lava tubes. They are like long skinny caves and are where the lava flowed underground.

    Odd question since this is geology, but does anyone know any modern day Indiana Jones? A male or female archaeologist who is under 40 and tearing up the world of archaeology? Whether the are internationally known or not is of no consequence. Am searching now, but I'm sure someone out there is MUCH more knowledgeable and up to date than me on these things...
