Geology and History of Joshua Tree National Park

The annual SDAG field trip was held October 30th and 31st, 2004.

This beautiful gem of Southern California was the destination for our 2004 field trip. We focused on the higher elevation, Mojave Desert portion of the park . SDAG members camped in the park, and visited several points of interest, not only geologic, but also mining and cultural. The field guides were printed and available the day of the trip. Dr. D. D. Trent, co-author of Joshua Tree National Park: Geology joined us on our trip. Note that Sunbelt Publishing has copies of Dr. Trent's book (with Dr. Richard W. Hazlett, 2002) for sale, along with our field guide! Check the Sunbelt website at http://www.sunbeltpub.com/.
