This class will examine the three different geologic regions of Arizona, and then discuss the geology of five areas in detail. The areas are the Catalina Mountains, Tucson Mountains, the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and northern Arizona, including several of our beautiful National Parks. There will be three optional field trips: 1) Catalina State Park about 2 1/2 hrs; 2) Catalina Mountains from the base to the top (an all-day car trip with eight stops); 3) Tucson Mountains which includes four short hikes (some with elevation) to examine features of the volcanic range. This will be an all-day excursion. The dates and times for the field trips will be determined by class consensus. Each participant is required to sign a waiver for each of the field trips.
