Alright, once again it's been a while since the last update. The previous update was during the summer and here we are back to classes with the weather cooling down. The end of my summer was great. I went on a two week journey that spanned five states. I was a student in a class called Geology 360 Field Investigation. We spent two weeks traveling looking at rock outcrops and learning about the events that formed the some of the mountains in the Rockies.

 

We left Lawrence early on a Monday morning and headed East of all directions. There was an outcrop where we would do our first mapping exercise before we hit the road and headed west towards Colorado and the Rocky mountains. We stopped at Mushroom Rock state park to see some really cool formations.

The first night we stayed near a lake in Western Kansas. It was really hot all night and kind of sucked. The next day we looked at some large outcrops near the lake before heading into Colorado.

 

In Colorado we did some more mapping exercises where we mapped out the contacts between different layers of rock. The main purpose of this class was to teach us how to do normal mapping out in the field. We learned a few different ways to do this (all by hand mind you, no computers).

We also saw ancient riverbeds in areas that contain dinosaur fossils.

We stayed in cabins for the weekend and had Saturday off so we could do our laundry and relax a bit. Once we left the campsite we headed to Southwestern Colorado and to the Great Sand Dunes. We got to the campsite when it was dark so we didn't get to see the dunes until the morning. The first thing we did the next morning was go out on the dunes.

Yup, those are people... The dunes are huge, covering 30 square miles, and they're formed by the winds, mountains and the creeks in a cyclic system. The sand that is there has been there for a long time and is very fine and soft feeling.

 

After being in Colorado for six days we headed to Utah and the Moab desert. We arrived at night and could only see what our flashlights illuminated. Our campsite was surrounded by rocks. Me and a few other guys climbed up on the backside of some of the rocks while we waited for our gear to arrive (the truck had got a flat tire so we carried on to the campsite while they fixed the tire because it had gotten rather late. While up on the rocks I got some good pictures of the stars.

The next morning we were all surprised when we awoke. Our campsite was beautiful!

We headed out into the desert to hike to the Delicate Arch. Arches National park is the worlds highest concentration of natural arches.

After a three mile hike we reached The Delicate Arch

It was very cool, and we hung out there for a while. That afternoon we went through Salt Lake City to get to our campground for the night. We had a huge cookout and a lot of fun.

 

The next day we went to the world largest open pit mine which is right outside of Salt Lake City. After that we went to Snowbird Ski Resort. We went to the top of their 11,000 foot peak to do a mapping exercise over metamorphic rocks and thrust faults. You could see the whole of Salt Lake City and the huge mine on the other side of the city too.

The mine is the tan area on the left horizon. We also had some fun visitors while we did our mapping!

After staying in Utah for the night we were on the road to Wyoming, the Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone Park. The whole area rests on top of a magma chamber and that's what causes all the cool geological activity there like Old Faithful. The Grand Tetons are South of Yellowstone so we saw them first as we headed North.

We spent the afternoon in Yellowstone getting the chance to shower (after 2 days without), eat dinner, see Old Faithful, and be tourists. The next day we went to see an area of mudpots and fumerols, which are all basically mud or steam shooting out of the ground. There were also some hot ponds and alkali waters.

After leaving the park and heading back South through the Tetons we stopped for the night again.

 

Our final mapping exercise was mapping and ancient moraine left by a mountain. The rocks here were deposited by the glaciers and are about 2.8 billion years old!

The glacier that left them here carved out the lake bed and deposited that big hill on the left (called a moraine).

 

Here's a view from where we did our mapping.

After this we headed back to Kansas. We spent our last night in Nebraska and had a long, long day of driving to get back home late Sunday night.

 

Overall it was a great trip. There were a total of forty students so I made many new friends including a few people with some sweet synths and hardware! I hope you enjoyed reading about my journey, it's too bad you couldn't have been there, but it's really worth seeing in real life.

 

Until next time...
