Tecopa, Tecopa

I took advantage of the long weekend, and took my Geology of California class out on a fabulous field trip to my favourite outcrop in California so they could get some practice drawing stratigraphic sections and using Brunton compasses to make measurements. I hope they learned a lot. I know we all had a great time!

The outcrop.

A great view of the Basin and Range Province of California.

Inside a talc mine - they're all looking at me "how'd you get up there?"

Monkey found a newspaper fragment (LA Examiner?) from 1925 around Dublin Gulch.

Then we went and found some trilobites, but I somehow didn't take any photos of that little jaunt. Hmmm...

I enjoy the word talc. And yes, I thought that this information was worth sharing.
