Photo: SAGUARO students taking a break from rafting to examine at a sand bar along the Colorado River near Fruita, Colorado.  Colorado National Monument provided both a scenic backdrop and an outdoor laboratory for introducing students to the numerous rock types encountered on the geologically uplifted Colorado Plateau.  Students had opportunities to stop along the river, take photos, discuss geology, and collect geological specimens for educational purposes.  It was a fun trip!
