We got to Wyoming yesterday after around 21 hours of driving. We made pretty good time, and I’m very excited to get started on the work that we came here to do. Lusk seems to be a nice little town, I went on a run this morning to see what the surrounding area looked like. I didn’t stay out for too long however, as it was around 35 degrees outside and very windy. But overall Lusk and Wyoming as a whole seems to be a sort of last true frontier. The rolling hills and farms surrounding us are beautiful in their own right, and I can’t wait to see what else the state has to offer. I believe we are going to meet with J.P. Cavigelli today and begin some heavy duty field work. We have an exciting day ahead of us.
I am a first year geology undergraduate student at the University of Cincinnati. I am very excited about our project and the geology, and will be learning as much I can along the way.
