Back Where We Started

University of Michigan, Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences Spain 2012 Field Trip group
near Potes, Spain, looking northwestward with the Picos de Europa in the background.
We have said goodbye to several students and co-leaders over the last 36-hours, and now, after a long wait and a short bus ride, it's time for the remaining group to disperse.

It's been an amazing trip this year, with a great, enthusiastic group of students. We saw a lot of fantastic rocks over the last two weeks, and sampled some interesting food and culture as well. A big thanks again to Maribel for all her efforts, and to those who helped subsidize the cost of the trip and ensure important opportunities like this remain within the reach of our students.

My apologies for all the typos and mistakes in posts during the trip; I never did get the hang of the accents on the iPhone's Spanish keyboard, the auto-correct turned geology terminology into some interesting alternatives, and we had a very packed schedule, so proof-reading was not an option; no blogging while driving!

Keep your eyes on this space for posts of some of the fantastic photos we took during the trip...
