Field trip guide to Oak Creek - Mormon Lake graben now online

The geologic field trip guide for the "Oak Creek-Mormon Lake Graben, North-Central Arizona by Paul Lindberg, 12 p. (May 2015)" is now posted online by the Arizona Geological Society

According to the announcement, this geologic field trip guide circumnavigates a loop of ~120 miles from Flagstaff to Sedona along Highway 89A and returns to Flagstaff along the Lake Mary Road.  [Right, Oak Creek-Mormon Lake graben.  The field trip starts in Flagstaff (black dot) and proceeds counter-clockwise around the graben perimeter.  Field trip stops are circled numbers]

"The 12 geologic stops focus on recent faulting and the encroachment of Basin and Range extensional structures on the Colorado Plateau. Each stop is detailed in the text, which is amply illustrated with photographs and colored geologic sketches.

The guide is made available to the public courtesy of Paul Lindberg and the Arizona Geological Society."

AGS acknowledged Paul Lindberg for a marvelous trip and field guide. Kevin Horstman prepared the digital copy for distribution and Cori Hoag placed it at the Arizona Geological Society online repository.
