Anyone doing anything fun for spring break?
I'm taking a 1 credit college class all that week.
But wait.....this class involves 5 days of backpacking into Needles District of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Sounds rough, huh? Well, it might be challenging, but it sounds awesome.
It's GEOL 333 Geology of the Canyon Country. I suppose we will have to read a paper about the Cedar Mesa Sandstone and look at some joint sets and other structures. I think it's mainly an excuse for my prof to get paid for teaching 1 credit and getting out into the field. There are 12 of us going.
Anybody been down the Peekaboo Trail to Salt Canyon and Angel Arch? From what I've heard the water is running pretty good in the canyons right now.
I've been packing and repacking my pack, deciding what I really need and what I can leave at home.
Last year's spring break geology class was a 5 day 4wd trip into the Maze District of CNP. It was so fantastic, I still think about it often.
