My family was against it and thought it would be "bor---ing" but we all thoroughly enjoyed this trip to a little touted attraction. If I remember it correctly, 34 million years ago this area of Colorado was covered with a glacier lake, plant life and massive redwoods, the petrified remains of which dot the meadow around the old lake bed at Florissant. The meadow walk was great with the redwood remains, lovely flora and playful prairie dogs popping in and out of view. Try to catch the ranger talk..it is interesting and informative.
