Thanks to the 61 folks who participated in our Odessa Craters field trip yesterday, Sunday, April 14, 2013. Karl Lillquist (CWU Geography) and Jack Powell (DNR geologist) led the trip to Soap Lake, Wilson Creek giant flood bars (with giant current ripples), and three stops at the Odessa Ring Craters.
