DASIA Field Trip - Nixon Springs/Nampaweap/Mt Trumbull/Mt Logan
    Nampaweap includes one of the largest petroglyph sites on the Arizona Strip. Inside the ravine, you walk
    on the rugged lava fields of the Uinkaret Plateau. Volcanism produced the cinders, cones and basalt
    flows that dominate the region. Beginning 150,000 years ago, seeping eruptions covered the ground.
    They formed multlple, thin beds of basalt. Slow cooling caused fractures that wind, water, and ice worked
    on resulting in huge chunks falling from the cliff. The scattering of boulders and the fragmented cliffs
    created perfect canvases for rock writing. High clearance vehicles are strongly recommended.
Lunch is $15 per person for DASIA members and $25 per person for others.
Make reservations at the Public Lands Information Center or call (435)688-3200.

    Lees Ferry is now a meeting of the old and the new.
