Geotour: Keweenaw Redbed Sediments

This is the fourth year of one day long geotours on the five Geoelements of Keweenaw Geoheritage.  These tours use ground and boat transportation and visit some of the most important places identified by the website.  We use the university research boat, the RV Agassiz.

This trip is to see and understand the red rocks that were carried from the Huron Mountains to fill the Keweenaw rift basin.  Best views are from Keweenaw Bay along the shorelines and we will see Rabbit Island and Jacobsville.
