The 2010 NMGS Fall Field Conference traveled through the Four Corners area in northwestern New Mexico. Day 1 circled the Four Corners Monument with stops in southeastern Utah, northwestern New Mexico and southwestern Colorado. Day 2 began in Cortez, CO and ended in Farmington and Day 3 began in Farmington and ended on the Ojo Alamo Sandstone south of Carson. Highlights of this conference and guidebook were discussions of Mesozoic stratigraphy, energy and resources from the San Juan Basin and southwestern Colorado and the use of geochronologic methods for refining our understanding of local strata and their fauna and flora.
