Allow us to take you on an intergalactic mission to the alien landscape of Mars. This version of Mars is much closer to home and found at Grosbeak Lake, the highlight of Benchmark Creek Trail (http://pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/nt/woodbuffalo/activ/randonnee-hiking). Learn about the causes behind the unusual surfaces and textures found on this extraordinary terrestrial feature. The displaced rocks arranged in a treeless clearing, covered with salt deposits, tell a story of an ancient prehistoric sea. Millions of years of history is distilled in this extraterrestrial guided hike.
