When Ice Ruled Leadville I
Oct 8 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

When Ice Ruled Leadville I
Photo: Dr. Matthews, instructor of How Ice Ruled LeadvilleLeadville’s spectacular scenery reflects a time when ice covered and formed much of the landscape. It was a time of valleys filled with thousands of feet of ice; of 600-foot deep lakes forming, then catastrophically emptying in a day. Learn to read the signs of this classic glacial terrain in the field. Generations of geologists all over America have studied Turquoise Lake in their classrooms. Now you can study its marvels first hand. Follow the glacially dammed lake from Malta to Buena Vista. Experience periglacial features such as patterned ground, rock glaciers, and sackungen. A 1/2 mile of hiking is required, dress appropriately for the hike and the weather. Pack a lunch or bring lunch money.
