Carlsbad/White Sands

Above are typical RFC classrooms. Dr. Ryan Mathur takes time during the remaining daylight to teach us about the geology of the area at White Sands, NM. The lesson included ripples, gypsum, evaporation, and play-doh, among other things. To the right, you can see the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns, NM.
