Get ready for the first activity of the quarter! We'll be headed to the Devil's Punchbowl Natural Area on Sunday, April 19th. This is an area of impressive sandstone formations, folded and tilted by the nearby San Andreas and other associated faults. We're planning to meet at the park at 8 am. Entrance and parking is free. We'll be following the short Loop Trail (~1 mile) and investigating and discussing the geologic context of the Punchbowl Formation. We'll also be stopping along the San Andreas Fault outside of the park.

Please RSVP to by Friday, April 17th if you would like to join us. Carpooling will be arranged on a first-come, first-served basis.
