Here are a couple of photos clipped from magazine articles that I used in teaching my geology classes before we had the internet.
Granite spires in Torres del Paine National Park, southern Chile. The photo was likely originally from the National Geographic.
Another shot of the spectacular scenery of Torres del Paine National Park, Chile from the same article. You can more great photos of this spectacular area on the National Geographic website here.

In 2000, I traveled to Rio de Janeiro to attend the International Geological Congress and took my daughter Leanna and nephew Ryan along. We had a great time in the beautiful country of Brazil and took a couple of field trips out into the mining districts near Rio.

In the spring of 1976, I worked as a field assistant and interpreter (most of the people spoke some French) for Dr. J. Keith Rigby, Sr. in Tunisia. Keith was studying Permian biohermal reefs that outcropped in the mountains near the city of Medenine, but we had the opportunity to travel to a number of places in the country. The scenery was spectacular and the people were warm and friendly, always wanting to stop and visit with the odd Americans tromping around in the desert.
