GSN Fall Field Trip
The Fall GSN field trip is to the Mono Lake – Mammoth Lakes area in east central California, approximately three hours south of Reno. The trip will highlight the recent volcanism associated with the Long Valley Caldera. A highlight of the trip will be a morning exploring the volcanic formations and beautiful vistas of the Devils Postpile National Monument.

The field trip will take place over three days, October 5 -7, 2018, Friday through Sunday. We’ll stay in Mammoth Lakes two nights and be back in Reno that Sunday evening around dinner time. We’ll ride in vans for better access to our field stops. Bring your camera as this field trip features some of the most scenic geologic terrain you will ever have the chance to visit up close. And since it is in early Fall at altitudes up to 9,000 feet we may even be treated to some colorful fall foliage. To get your name on the reservation list, please contact Laura Ruud at the GSN office:; 775-323-3500.
