Zyzzyx - Yes Its a Real Place!
A conference in the Mohave with geoscience teachers made for an interesting and productive weekend. Getting back into the desert was enough for me however a day of basalt and rhyolite with Brandon Brown of CSU Fullerton was the highlight. Modesto Junior College will be hosting the next NAGT Conference in Fall - so this was also a great learning experience. Through the observations of others who organized this conference at Zyzzyx held at the C.S.U. Desert Studies Center, I was able to see what obstacles might be awaiting us. There is definitely a lot of work that needs to be done, however I think we will be hosting a great event in Fall the High Sierra Institute (a.k.a. historic Baker Station). All-in-all - a great weekend and made some new friends to boot.
