Astronomy & Geology in Eastern Oregon

Date: October 4, 2013 - October 6, 2013 PDT

Come enjoy the east side of the Cascade Mountains where the stars are out and the geology is amazing! On this trip we’ll head out towards Madras, Oregon and stay in a rustic lodge for the weekend. During the day we’ll hike canyons and extinct volcanoes while exploring vast geologic features from the Cascade Range’s eruptive past. At night we’ll use our perch in the high desert to our advantage and learn basic astronomy. This new trip is packed full and isn’t one to miss!
