Ephraim, Utah. July 27.
Today, I’m spending most of the day packing rocks, field equipment, and personal belongings in order to get ready to fly out of Salt Lake City tomorrow. Leaving Ephriam most summers is often bittersweet. I’m excited to get back to Wooster to begin analyzing all of the data that was collected this summer. However, I am also amazed that the 6 weeks out here has come to an end so soon. Hiking all day long while mapping and collecting data for stratigraphic and structural projects is good for my soul and always works to rejuvenate me as a geologist. So, naturally, a part of me wants to remain out here and continue to explore the geology of central Utah, a region of geologic complexity and intrigue. Responsibilities in Wooster await, and I’m sure that Phil and Bill are as eager as I am to begin sifting through their Senior I.S. data. Wooster, here I come!!
