Participants will meet at a specified location to be given at time of ticket purchase.

Stops will include major fault zones, remains of ancient volcanics, the intrusive Lincoln Sill, oceanic pillow basalts, a former ancient coastline, and a view to ancient Avalonia where two continents meet. Questions will be entertained throughout the trip, and a boxed lunch/drink will be provided!
