Hello fellow Geo-Trekkers,

Come explore the natural wonders of the Owens Valley Mammoth Mountain area! we will hike on the youngest extinct volcano in the US, and see the oldest living organisms on earth. We will visit the rapidly vanishing Mono Lake and its peculiar rock formations, observe numerous recent earthquake faults, see the spectacular evidence of glaciers and lava flows in the Sierras and the source of volcanic eruptions that once covered half of North America. Come visit the spectacular alabama hills, where many Western movies were filmed, and huge dry falls cut by Ice Age lake floods.
