Tour Florissant Fossil Beds

When: Sun., Dec. 26, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 2, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2011

Get off your turkey-ham-stuffing-pumpkin-pie-laden rear and take a hike. The Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (15807 Teller County Road 1, nps.gov/flfo/index.htm) is offering a guided one today, free with a $3-per-person entry fee. From 10 to noon, park ranger Shawn Frizzell will trek you two to three miles around the monument. You'll start and end the adventure at the park's yurt, with complimentary hot chocolate to top it all off. Bundle yourself up real good, and call 719/748-3253 if the weather's at all questionable. — Kirsten Akens
