The group will travel back in time to the Eocene Epoch when swamps, reptiles, and large land mammals swarmed Wyoming’s lush landscape and traverse the sandstone pillars and colorful badlands of this enchanting canyon land.

The outing will depart Rock Springs Friday afternoon, with the option of joining Saturday morning, and will return Sunday evening. The group will car camp Friday and Saturday night and spend the weekend hiking and exploring the highly eroded badlands, canyons, and fossils of Adobe Town.

This is free to the public and is an overnight trip. A high clearance vehicle is required. However, carpooling is available for those who do not have access to a high clearance vehicle.

The only way to understand the present is to look into the past. Touch fossils and walk upon the ancient seas and canyons of Adobe Town!
