Purpose: Orientation EVA. Teach students about sample collecting, navigation, and communication. Major landmarks were identified to acclimate ourselves to the area.
We started the EVA at the sand dunes where we learned about strata. We spent some time learning about hoodoos and their formation. The creek bed had many marine fossils. Pictures were taken. The gypsum field was beautiful. Before driving back to the hab we spent a few minutes looking and learning about Henry Mountain.
