Outside of school and Mika keeping us busy, we went to a fantastic little slice of Las Vegas right here in Golden on Friday night. We saw Gladius the show at the JeffCo county fairgrounds which was an experience to say the least! It was 90 minutes of pure entertainment with people doing backflips on horses, chariot racing, vaulting, and some amazing acrobatics and fire routines! I can't believe that we are so spoiled to have such a great show right here in our back yard for a month before they head out on the road. If they come through your neck of the woods definitely check it out!
I have also been volunteering at Dinosaur Ridge here in Morrison, it is a great program to get out and educate people on the geologic past of the front range and spread the knowledge to everyone who comes by. I spent Saturday working two sites at the Ridge and met a lot of people that were very interested in the rocks and that had no idea such a fantastic track site and fossil quarry was right there in their back yard. Well that's about all we have been up to here in Golden, hopefully as field season approaches I will manage to get up some more posts before disappearing for the summer!
