The 1991 New Mexico Geological Society Fall Field Conference tours the south-central part of New Mexico after a 27-year hiatus (Guidebook 15). Topics in this guidebook range from several papers on the Precambrian, both as basement rocks and exposures, to Pleistocene glaciation. From discussions of the most basic and fundamental structures of the crust in this part of the world to the nuts-and-bolts of the economic potential for mineral development and to the history of Lincoln and Otero Counties. The first-day road log is from Inn of the Mountain Gods to Bent Dome, Tularosa, Alamogordo, Cloudcroft and return to Inn of the Mountain Gods. The second-day tour begins again at Inn of the Mountain Gods on to Hondo, Lincoln, Capitan and returns to Inn of the Mountain Gods. The third-day road log is from Inn of the Mountain Gods to Nogal, Carrizozo, White Oaks and Valley of Fires.
