Wednesday morning several of us got up at sunrise, only to find out it was fairly overcast towards the east when the sun was coming over the horizon. I turned the camera around to the west to watch the sun hit the Santa Ysabel mountain range.
Can’t pass up a group photo. CU students w/ Dr. Austin & Dr. Whitmore.
Dr. Steve Austin gives directions for the students to form groups and measure strata along the Fish Creek Mountains.
Dr. John Whitmore assists Matt on using the Brunton compas.
Dr. John Whitmore explains how to use the Jacob Staff to Chris & Matt as they prepare to measure the strata.
Taking a moment with Dr. John Whitmore as he walks around to the several groups around the mountain range.
Alex measures the dip as Matt looks through the sight and tells Chris where to place the next cairn marker in measuring the strata.
After all the mapping is completed in the groups, they all got back together to discuss the project and share their findings.
