Students share some of their favorite photos and memories of the trip. Abby Momberg said, “With having most of the past two years being remote classes due to Covid, I felt that I didn’t know many people within the geology program.
“This trip changed that completely!”
She is thankful the Department of Geography, Geology, and Planning offers experiences for students outside of the classroom. She said, “It showed me a whole side of the country I’ve never seen before.” She has memories she says she will never forget! She took hundreds of photos while in the Four Corners region.
Students visited Dead Horse Point, Canyonlands National Park, Goosenecks of the San Juan River, and Arches National Park in Utah. Colorado National Monument and the Ship Rock Landform in New Mexico. The national parks of Sunset Crater Volcano, the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert, and Canyon de Chelly in Arizona.
Elizabeth Jones said her biggest takeaway was seeing just how different landscapes can be. She said,
“It was fascinating to see geology that differs so wildly from the Ozarks.”
“I knew these places existed, but it was still eye-opening.”
