Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk on a glacier, see the tallest mountain in North America, stand by an active mud volcano, or explore the evidence of past earthquakes, landslides, and volcanic eruptions? This trip is going to take you to some of the most spectacular places in Alaska including Kenai Fjords National Park, Denali National Park, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, Chugach State Park, and the Talkeetna Mountains. We will drive, boat, and hike through these amazing landscapes and learn about the geologic processes involved in creating them. We will be sure to see all sorts of wildlife along the way, including seals, bears, moose, and caribou, and we will experience nearly 24-hours of daylight. And to make it even better, students will fulfill part of their physical science GE requirements for taking the course!
