We’re moving right along with our campus geotour – it’s amazing geology students ever get any class time in, considering how much there is to distract a person on the way to class, and we’ve only just got started.
Stop 9. Milne Hall
So here’s a place with lovely marble accents.
This is the kind of marble we think of when someone says “marble.” But there’s quite another kind of marble in the other foyer.
I felt like I was in a box of squashed zebras in that foyer, actually. But it was intriguing.
Stop 10: Strand Agricultural Hall
So here’s where I have to get a bit creative. This is cross-bedded sandstone, and it is awesome, but its awesomeness did not photograph so well. That’s what I get for trying to shoot subtle features in very dim light. I’m screaming for joy that my camera managed the feat at all.
By the end of a very short visit to this locale, I was discerning cross-cutting relationships like a pro – well, at least an apprentice. Easy-peasy, and awesome! I don’t know if it’ll be at all easy doing it from photos, but if anybody wants to download things to mark up, they are more than welcome to play round with it.
Next, we’ll be on to the Memorial Union, where we’ll be subjected to one of the worst jokes ever that still somehow ends up being funny…
