Day 7 – Anza-Borrego / Geology Trip

It was our last day in southern California and it started as early as all the other days. We packed up the vehicles and took off from the hotel and headed to Loma Linda University. Dr. Leonard Brand, Professor of biology and paleontology gave us a grand tour of the facilities. We had the opportunity to meet many of the other geology department faculty.

After our time in Loma Linda, we headed off to the airport to drop off the vehicles : / and to fly back to Cedarville. It was an uneventful return trip and relatively quick.

I shot about 680 digital images during the week & 6 rolls of 120 BW film, as well as about 20 Polaroid images. I was have a seperate post of some of my favorite Polaroid images in a few days.
I figured we drove about 130 miles a day on average.

All in all … it was a great trip.
