||Location / Information
||Excellent hands-on demo of "How the Rockies were
made". Turn the dials and make the land heave, crack and buckle. Watch glaciers
move down the valley carrying rocks and debris making moraines and carving new
lakes. Also, excellent exhibits of the animals that inhabit moraine park.
||The Big Thompson River, whose
headwaters are located in the Forest Canyon to the west, meanders through the
Moraine Park before giving way to spectacular rapids. A dirt road turn off from
Bear Lake Road will lead you to a small parking lot and two picnic tables.
Also, a favorite stop for those fishing the Big Thompson River.
