Geology Roadtrips - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Summer is here and most of us are ready for a vacation, even a short one. We donít need to travel too far to see some great geology. Following is a sampling, by no means comprehensive, of some of the favorite geology hikes, known and not-so-known, that  geologists recommended to Geotimes. Some of these sites are a short drive from major cities or interstates, others more of an adventure to reach. For some, we offer detailed descriptions, for others just a name and number. But readers should find at least one gem in almost every U.S. state and in a few parts of Canada. 

West Coast: California, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii
Rocky Mountain States: Colorado, Utah and Wyoming
Southwest States: Nevada, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico
Midwest: Oklahoma, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota and Nebraska
Great Lakes States: Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota and Indiana
Southern States: Florida, Arkansas and Missouri
New England and Mid-Atlantic States: Connecticut, Vermont, New York, West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey

We apologize that this year we donít have any suggestions for Iowa, Montana, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island,  and Delaware. We invite your suggestions about which sites in these states we can feature in next year's Geology Roadtrips issue.
