6 Days & 1045 miles

Spring Break 2019 – 6 days, 1045 miles & 24 images.

I had the opportunity to go along with Dr. John Whitmore and six Cedarville University geology students on a spring break petrology class trip out west to Anza Borrego Desert & Death Valley National Park.

On our flight out west, Dr. Whitmore prepares for our week out west.
