Fall Field Trip 2019
Three faculty and 9 students traveled to Mammoth Cave and the surrounding area, then to Jamestown, KY for the Department’s annual Fall Field Trip. The group left Denison by vans on September 11 and returned on September 15.
Their first stop was Mammoth Cave, where they spent the day. The group took a cave tour and a surface tour, including the Cedar sink hike and historical tour. The next day, the group traveled to the Jamestown KY area, where they boarded a double decker pontoon boat and traveled around Lake Cumberland viewing turbidites, encrinites, mud mounds (Wallsortian-type Mounds), and geodes. The group had lunch on the boats and then returned to their rented cabins for dinner and discussions. They packed up and returned to Denison the following morning.
