Grand Canyon Day 2
On day 2 of our Grand Canyon class trip we hiked the Bright Angel trail to plateau point. It was 6 miles down and 6 miles back up. The first mile down was covered in ice. I sat on my butt and slide that mile. At plateau point Dr Clayton had us identify the rock layers of the canyon. It was a lot of fun. On our way down we each has a packet of information that we used to identify the rock layers as we were walking among them. I really enjoyed trying to figure out which was which. In a few days when my finals are over I will attempt to have Geologic post of the Grand Canyon. So keep your eyes peeled. Also don't forget to take the survey. Ill have 2 weeks free and be able to research for these future posts.
