Idaho – 2018
Geology field trip to South Central Idaho April 20-23, 2018
Terry Maley and Virginia Adler have set up a field trip for Geologists of Jackson Hole to visit several geologic features of central Idaho starting with Craters of the Moon. The date is April 20-22 and we will be staying in two different motels that you will need to make your own reservations. Please email GJH Board Member John Guslander at Summary Description and Itineraryto reserve a spot. The trip is limited to 30 people. Carpooling will be organized ahead of the trip rather than the morning of the trip since parking can be an issue and some people will leave earlier.
Field Trip to North-Central Idaho August 10-12, 2018
Central Idaho has a wealth of readily seen and significant geologic features. This trip will be led by Dr. Paul Link, from Idaho State University, who has long studied and published on the geology of Central Idaho. The trip will allow us to examine Proterozoic (really old!) and Paleozoic stratigraphy, evidence for the Antler orogeny (a quite early thrust belt), Sevier belt thrust faults, Cretaceous Idaho batholith, Eocene Challis magmatic rocks, and Neogene Basin and Range deformation on a three-day field trip. We will camp at Lost River Field Station (LRFS) north of Mackay. This is the Idaho State University Field Camp base, and has hot water, showers, internet access and a full kitchen.
Further details and when / how to sign up will be forthcoming.
