Hello everybody. Today is our last day in Bishop. We've learned a lot the last few days. We looked at volcanic deposits, earthquakes, and stream discharge rates. Here are some pictures.
We spent half a day driving and studying an assortment of features in the area. We stopped at the Owens River.
Izzy wearing both of our cowboy hats.
The next day, we made a stratigraphic column of the Bishop Tuff, volcanic pumice deposits.

The tuff, it was really tough... hahaha!!

The next day we studied faults. This is a road outcrop of the Bishop Tuff with some normal faults going through it because of basin and range extension. Ari is analyzing it.

Artsy fiery cloud.
Professor Brian today at the crick. We calculated the discharge of the stream.
Davey, Cat, and Andi at lunchtime.
We measured the discharge using only a meter stick, pretty badass!
We had the afternoon off so a bunch of us went bouldering. Bishop is famous for its bouldering, we went to a place called the Happies. Here is Andi climbing like a pro.
Artsy bungus shot!

Young Q, where'd you come from?!?!?!?

Then we went into Bishop. Liza met a stranger on the road.
Lenticular clouds!! Aliens are coming, run and hide, run and hide, run and hide!!!
Tomorrow morning we are leaving for Vegas, it's going to be just like The Hangover!! We're camping at Lake Mead, it should be a great time. We get a new professor tomorrow, Leslie Sonder.
We won't have internet while camping, but we'll update later. That's all for now folks, see you next time.
