Gneiss Walk in Rattlesnake Canyon — Images by kenne

Last week, SCVN Bruce Garrett conducted his inaugural “Gneiss Walk” in Sabino Canyon. Bruce, a retired geologist, will be leading the walk each week on the geology of Sabino Canyon. This walk is one of the best “focus walks” in the canyon, and knowing Bruce, it will continue to get better each week. I look forward to learning a lot from Bruce. The “Gneiss Walk” is a real nice walk!

    Those of you who follow my blog may recall that in late March of this year, our good friend and fellow SCVN member Bruce Garrett past away. As a naturalist, Bruce made many contributions to the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalist program, one that widely known and enjoyed was his signature geology walk, “Gneiss Walk.” This Reblog is from November 15, 2011.– kenne
