The Buffalo Bill Center of the West invites families to journey with local geologist Dan Miller on July 6 for a free evening of adventure and learning in the great outdoor geology classroom. Miller guides participants on a leisurely bike ride through the Shoshone Canyon to discover the stunning rock layers of the Big Horn Basin. The excursion is a perfect way to explore the beauty and breadth of this canyon, while enjoying an engaging, interactive lesson about the surrounding area’s geologic history.
Individuals wishing to join the fun should meet at Hayden’s Arch Bridge, located on old US 14/US 16 just west of Cody, at 4:30 p.m. on July 6. After biking along the Shoshone Canyon pathway and exploring the vast rock formations with Miller, the group is scheduled to return at 6:30 p.m.
All are welcome for this free family event; however, pre-registration is appreciated. In order to register, visit tickets.centerofthewest.org, and select “Bike and Rock Talk.”
