On our Geology Field Trip this May we will visit these places: Red Rock Canyon (near Las Vegas). Valley of Fire State Park. Pine Valley Mountains. Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. Moccasin Mountain Dinosaur Trackway. Buckskin Gulch. Zion National Park. All in the company of professor of geology who will help us understand what we are seeing. Why does that rock look like that? What caused that thing to happen? How is this feature related to what we saw 100 miles ago? Why is there lava on top of the sandstone in the middle of this canyon? If you are interested, I suggest you google images for each of the sites we will visit.
Buckskin Gulch. One of the sites we will explore on our Geology Field Trip this May.

Come away. Study rocks by day and the star spangled sky by night. In the company of other men who are curious about the earth and God and humanity. Receive instruction from a geologist whose specialty is the rocks in front of us. Ponder. Laugh. Eat good food. Watch a campfire. This spring. With me and other friends. See the Journeys page for details.
My personal history encapsulates Adventist history–movement from fascination (obsession) with end times to engagement with the beauty and responsibilities of our present world, movement from desperate hunger for acceptance by God to solid confidence that God takes delight in the life of his children, movement from a concern with theories of salvation to a laughing confidence that damnation is a vanishingly remote possibility, from a profound suspicion of science to a profound distrust of theologians.
