Spring 2007 - Canyon de Chelly, Arizona

We didn't venture out too far this fall, going to the NE corner of the state to explore Canyon de Chelly's connections with other solar system bodies, especially Titan.

The Chinle Formation, which is a series of layers deposited by a prehistoric river system.

As we arrived at Canyon de Chelly to discuss how it was formed by groundwater flow, we unfortunately got snowed on.
