Hike into Hell’s Half Acre, Sunday, October 15th, 11:00 am  (rescheduled from October 8th)

Last spring on our way to Thermopolis to swim, we stopped at Hell’s Half Acre and RE’ers (youth and children of UU Casper’s Religious Exploration Program) wanted to spend more time there, so here it is!

We got snowed out last Sunday (October 8th), so we’ve rescheduled! After Sunday service on Oct. 15th, RE’ers, friends and family will be carpooling from the church and heading out to Hell’s Half Acre for a guided hike of the weirdly beautiful area, weather permitting. We are fortunate to have an archaeologist and geologist or two to teach us about the ancient human inhabitants and how this strange place was formed.

We will be able to enter the gate and drive to the picnic area. From there, we’ll walk down an old road into “hell.” The footing is good, it’s not too steep, but it will be an uphill climb coming back! Those who wish to can stay at the picnic area and enjoy the view.

This outing will take 2-3 hours. Young children will need close supervision and guidance, but should find this outing fun too.

Please dress in layers appropriate for the weather, and wear long pants and sturdy shoes. Snacks and water will be provided, but feel free to bring whatever you would like. All are welcome! Contact RE chairperson Debra Park for more information (775-771-4485, dlpark73@gmail.com).
