|Grand Tetons National Park, Wyoming|
Have you ever dreamed of hitting the open road and finally seeing those places you've dreamed about, but haven't acted on that dream yet? What if you found out about an excursion that doesn't just tour, but allows you to learn the geology and history of those wild places? A tour on which you can even earn college credit? AND, a tour that is affordable? Maybe this is the one...
|Mt. Shasta, a Cascade volcano in northern California|
|Lava Tube in Lava Beds National Monument|
|The view from Smith Rock State Park in Oregon|
