I am pleased to announce the Geologists of Jackson Hole Field Trip to New Zealand starts March 13, 2019 and ends April 2, 2019. This three-week excursion to the South Island of New Zealand should be a remarkable, perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime trip exploring geology, history, archaeology, geography, fauna, flora, and more in one of the world’s truly unique places. On the South Island we will explore the recent earthquake damage in Christchurch, travel the scenic costal roads, explore natural arches, walk the Alpine Fault – a major plate boundary, walk through a gold mining district, view the Lord of the Rings site and cruise on beautiful Doubtful Sound.
Please read the trip summary by Mike Adler carefully (which can be found in the Newsletter), because it shows many of the places that we will visit. We have Professors Virginia Toy- structural geologists, Mike Palin – Igneous petrology expert and Dushan Jugum – Ophiolite expert as our guides. They have helped to organize a very exciting trip for us.
