We will be offering this Field Trip Twice on this day - this is the afternoon field trip

Hike along the Green River and learn about what geologic conditions created the famous Flaming Geyser, what makes the Bubbling Geyser white, and look for coal seams in outcrops along the trail.  It has been decades since I have been here but looking forward to seeing how the area has changed.
