January 1, 2013 - My first hike of the new year was at the Trail Through Time, a 1.6 mile interpretive loop trail
where dinosaur fossils were once found. This trail's dinosaur stuff reminded me of
Dinosaur Hill (Fruita) and
Riggs Hill (Grand Junction), but the trail is
longer and located in the Rabbit Valley region.
All in all, I'd say this hike was a dud. The scenery is so-so and trails with geological
markers are a "dime a dozen" in this region. You're better off
hiking Rabbit's Ear Mesa or
the trails across the Interstate in the McInnis Canyons region. Still, a hike is a hike
and it's always good to spend time outdoors. Below are my photos of two recent visits.
