On 03/28/2018, Bob Croke, Cindy Pace and myself had a guided hike of the proposed hiking trails of the tufa beds inside the Las Vegas Fossil Beds National Monument. Our hike was provided by Sandy Croteau, VP/On-Site Chairman of POTS. We hiked about 3.4 miles. As we hiked along our guide provide information about many of the plants that we encountered; a geologist provided information about the creation of the topography and the surrounding mountains.
