After 3 days of jet lag i feel ready to write a blog about the trip. Overall the trip was excellent and i hope to do something similar in the future. I had the pleasure to experience the some of the most amazing scenery Ive ever seen. I’m a visual learner and felt this was a great way to see geologic processses upfront and in person. Zion, Valley of Fire and Death Valley National Park were some of my favorite stops out of the trip. I hit my all time record and did not shower for 6 days. “The thing is” “french fried potaters” & ” Fataso” were some of my favorite quotes that never got old. Here is a picture of The Valley of Fire taken on march 8th 2009.
