Getting Outdoors

Central Texas is a great area to explore geology. With its extensive limestone deposits you can encounter a variety of fossils. Right here in Copperas Cove you can find nice exposed segments of the Upper Glen Rose formation. We’re thinking of an informal get-together at the Ogletree Gap Park (1878 Post Office Rd, Copperas Cove, TX 76522) to do some fossil hunting and perhaps some orienteering classes (learning to use a compass). Who knows, you might even find a nice piece of flint to make a stone age hand tool out of.
