Space cowboy and Apollo 14 backup LMP Joe Engle is parking a mockup of the MET during geologic training at Sierra Pinacate, a group of volcanic peaks and cinder cones in Mexico in February 1970.

I bet that those were some fun days spent out in the field. Getting away from the office to the great outdoors tends to bring out the kid in many of us, especially the geologists. I wish these trips had been better chronicled. I have to believe there were some fun stories and lots of gothca's.

Another great picture Ed that speaks volumes!

I have (twice) and it's a great book. But it doesn't get into a lot of detail about the field trips and some of the fun stories that must have happened.
