Some of those formation boundaries were tough to differentiate

At one point we were only 5 min. away from Canada…so close!

Glacier National Park

Hello lovelies! It’s been awhile since I last posted and I apologize for that.

For the past six weeks I have been all over Oregon and Montana completing the requirements to become a geologist…officially! Whoop!

During that time, a trip to Glacier National Park was made. I was blown away by the gorgeous scenery, vibrant array of wildflowers, and the diversity of wildlife there. On my second day there I made a 12 mile hike and was able to see Grinell lake, Grinell Glacier, and Red Rocks Falls along with hiking the Logan Pass area the day before after having arrived.

There is no doubt that I will be making another trip to Glacier whenever I can next.

Hope y’all have a great weekend!

Paleo Field Work Out In John Day

John Day Fossil Beds National Monument has got to be one of the most phenomenal places to witness geology. The Painted Hills themselves even seem to be something out of a Star Wars movie with their array of colors.

I was recently lucky enough to do some soil science field work in the area for a few days. Needless to say, I will definitely be back at John Day and at a time where it can be more of a recreational visit.

Oregon geology at it’s finest y’all!

Last weekend, as previously mentioned, I went down with some other petrologists from the UO to study the metamorphism of the Klamath Mountains. The Klamath River itself is gorgeous but the scenery around it is just a bit of heaven for geology gals like myself.

For anyone going to Northern California soon, I’d definitely recommend stopping by this national park for the views and some great hiking and climbing.

Happy Friday!
