A 2-week field course in Arizona. It will be part of a 3-credit spring semester course, which would be formally completed in late May.
The course would include a number of preparatory class meetings during the spring semester culminating in the field trip, which is likely to be held immediately after graduation.
The trip would follow a clockwise loop beginning and ending in Phoenix and would most likely include the following world-class geological locations (exact itinerary to be finalized later):
Sedona/Red Rock Canyon Country
San Francisco Volcanic Field, Sunset Crater
Grand Canyon (2 days)
Canyon de Chelly National Monument
Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert
Salt River Canyon
Saguaro National Park and Santa Catalina Range
Porphyry Copper Mine Tour
Tucson Mts, Sonora Desert Museum
Other locations can be added, if time allows.
