K/T Boundary and the Valles Caldera

Spring, 2000
May 14-18

Our trip to the K/T Boundary Impact Ejecta in the Raton Basin of Colorado & New Mexico was definitely a good one. Our usual fieldtrip leader, Jay couldn't make it, but Dave Kring led the trip. Our destination, which was carefully planned months in advance, was unfortunately in the grips of one of the worst forest fires that New Mexico had experienced in recent memory. So we had to do some last-minute alterations to the itinerary and camping spots.
