Geo field trips
Last weekend I helped my advisor lead a field trip for structural field geology. The trip was into the needles and grabens of canyonlands national park, in Utah. 20 people and 5 jeeps was a bit of a logistical nightmare, but nobody flipped a jeep off a cliff or anything, so that was good. This is why I like geology... field-expeditions into remote areas and exceptional structures like perfect full-grabens, relay-ramps and fault controlled sink holes.
