Aspen Grove

Field Trip with Glaciology, Feb 2011

BYU Geology students trudged up the mountain above Aspen Grove on a beautiful and cold February afternoon to study snow and ice in action. In four groups, they dug 5 foot snow pits and studied the "petrology" and stratigraphy, and obtained depths from around the field site. They obtained lots of good data for class projects, and no one permanently lost fingers or toes.

Check out the pit digging in action
