Trinidad Lake State Park

I learn later that there is evidence of a mass extinction in this park! We find plenty of other things to look at on our morning hike of the self-guided nature trail and other trails. Next time I’ll have to keep my eye out for a dark layer in the sandstone that marks the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event. If Yellowstone blows, or we encounter a good-sized asteroid, maybe we could be part of a layer like that!

One thought on “Trinidad Lake State Park

  1. For the record: Trinidad Lake State Park is a very beautiful, very nice, very overpriced campground! We only stayed because it was there, it was late, and we were en route from Santa Fe to Denver in our r.v. The hike was really nice though!
