Over the past few years Lizzy has been lucky enough to travel and examine old interesting rocks in different places around the world. She’s spent time in Death Valley, Bishop, Hawaii, Western Australia and now South Africa. Despite all the time spent looking at rocks these trips usually don’t include any climbing. So no side trip to Rocklands for Lizzy this year.
These field sessions are a necessary part of Lizzy’s, and most geologists, academic work since you need to have a solid understanding of how the rocks were formed and their surrounding environment. Her interest in old, were talking Billions of years, rocks requires finding a suitable area and taking samples in a location where those rocks are exposed. This years trip is a short one and her first to this field area so Lizzy will be back in early August.
You can check out some of her older trips under the geology tag or read over this report on being a geologist:
In the mean time Lizzy has written up some content to tide everyone over while she is away. The most recent is a guest blog over at The Clymb. Lizzy and I are all about getting sweet gear at good prices and this site offers just that. The Clymb rotates through different brands and offers sale prices during a certain number of days. Lizzy was able to nab a sweet 2XU triathlon suit on the Clymb and has been using it in her recent multi-sport races (post coming next week!).
