Petrology field trip to South Mountain Batholith

Igneous Petrology (Geol 3403) students and their professor (Sandra Barr) and TA (Alicia Moning) enjoyed a field trip to look at granite varieties in the South Mountain Batholith during their lab on October 10th.  Although the sun did not shine, it did not rain either, and the rocks and Fall colours were enjoyed by all. 

Photographs by Alex Whitney and Ashton Baich show the great scenery (and cooked metasedimentary rocks) at the last stop near Vaughan, south of Windsor.

Olamide and Miguel get close up with the granite as other class members look on.

Deep in the woods, Charlie and Caleb find more varieties of granite.

Alex provides a selfie of him and a happy Ashton as class members search for outcrop.
