Hockey Cirque

Warning - these pictures may only appeal to geologists! Our snow days gave us the chance to do some other things besides hunt for meteorites. A few of us, Oz, Mike Kelley, Mike Rampey, and I took a day to really explore the big granite body exposed in Hockey Cirque. We were particularly interested in how the magma interacted with the country rocks, mostly black schists, so we collected some samples and may return to study it in more detail. We felt a little like astronauts, walking around in big, heavy clothes that restricted our movements, and goggles and hats that felt like helmets, while trying to do geology!
