A Geologist’s Vacation in Canada

Most people know me as a Geology student, a computer guy or a mix of both. As a part of my Geology degree at the University of Calgary, I participated in field schools. They are a valuable asset to get hands on experience. However, how many of you would like to explore the Geology in your area but have no idea what to look for?

I complied set of pictures showing good Geological features (mostly structural) I took last year in Western Canada. I will post the locations later sometimes so you can also have Geologist’s Vacation!

Please click on the images to view the higher resolution one. The captions identify the major feature in each photo.
