So in late June early July my wife, 2 boys (8 & 2.5), my father in-law and mother-in-law and I are going to take a 2 week road trip around the US. We'll be leaving Maryland and heading down to Memphis, Tennessee followed by Nashville then on to Texas and ending up in Albuquerque, New Mexico at my brother-in-law's for a few days, then off to the Grand Canyon, up to Dinosaur National monument, over to Hot Springs, South Dakota to the Mammoth site, Mt Rushmore, and Crazy Horse Monument, then to the Badlands in South Dakota, and then start making our way back to home. We're taking some new paths and going back over some previous ones. I am interested in doing 1-2 hour fossil and/or rock and mineral collecting leg stretches not terribly far off US 40 between Memphis and Albuquerque. Honestly anywhere else near the places I listed and anywhere along US 90 back to Chicago and down to Indianapolis, then US 70 the rest of the way east towards home. I'm hoping if I ask on here I can get a handful of options for the trip, we may only do two or three depending on time, weather and general feedback from the rest of the family. I have messaged PFooley about the Albuquerque/Rio Puerco area. After we get back I will have to make a write up of the adventure, it should be a great trip full of geologic and paleontological fun. Thanks for any information, Adam
Kdeus posted a topic in A Trip to the MuseumI just came across this and think it's a fantastic opportunity for kids to go on a virtual field trip through the National Park Service. It says it's geared for students Ages 6-7, Ages 8-10, Ages 11-13, Ages 14-18. I'm not certain what it takes to set up one of these for kids, but I'm going to look into it. I thought I'd share for anyone else interested in looking into it. More info at link below. Discover Jurassic Fossils at Dinosaur National Monument. "In this lesson, students can learn about fossils, dinosaurs, geology, geologic time, earth history, and adaptation." https://education.microsoft.com/Story/VirtualFieldTrip?token=6XX2P
