New Mexico Geological Society
Fall Field Conference Guidebook - 15
Ruidoso Country


Sidney R. Ash and Leon R. Davis, eds., 1964, 195 pages.

Welcome to the Ruidoso country and the Fifteenth Annual Field Conference of the New Mexico Geological Society. Those of us who have been spoiled by extensive outcrops in barren desert mountains now will appreciate the problems of the tree-dodging geologists who work in these higher elevations of more humid climates. You will see some of the better exposures in the road cuts along the highways of the conference route. Sometime just try to follow the rock units back into the forested areas! The first day trip will travel from Ruidoso to Sierra Blanca Ski Resort, then onto Tularosa, Carrizozo, Malpais, and return to Ruidoso. The second day will caravan from Ruidoso to Hondo, Capitan, Capitan Iron Deposits, and return to Ruidoso. The third day will travel to Capitan, Carrizozo, White Oaks, Ancho and Gallinas.
