ZZYZX, CALIFORNIA–All four geology faculty members, our administrative coordinator Patrice Reeder, Jesse Wiles and eight students have safely arrived at the Desert Studies Center in the delightful Zzyzx. We spent a few hours exploring the Jurassic sandstones exposed in the Red Rocks Conservation Area outside Las Vegas (with marvelous dune cross-bedding) and then slogged through horrible Los Angeles-bound traffic from Las Vegas to Baker, California. (All too typical for a Sunday night here.)
Unfortunately bandwidth is highly restricted, so our posts will be infrequent until we return to Wooster.
I think I am not alone in saying that the world is looking forward to photos of Professor Wilson in action in his element.
