In the spring of 2001, I was invited by Dr. John Warme of the Colorado School of Mines, to join his expedition to the Alamo Breccia in Nevada, the Upheaval Dome, Utah, and Canyonlands, Utah. My article about the expedition ("Beneath the Invisible Sea: Hiking the Alamo Breccia") can be found in the February 2002 issue of Meteorite magazine.

Design and production on my Alamo Breccia Expedition website is still in progress. I have over 400 photographs to edit and post here, so please stop back soon to see the rest of them.
