    Hey Joel, don’t know if you ever found one but if not, I think you could get a copy from USGS Denver library. They have a fairly complete set of Rocky Mountain FOP trips donated by Mike Machette when he retired.

    Your list of trips doesn’t include the Rocky Mountain FOP trip on September 10, 2005 at Craters of the Moon and on land controlled by the Idaho National Lab. The trip leaders were Doug Owen, Craters of the Moon Park Ranger and Dr. Catherine M. Helm-Clark from the Idaho National Laboratory. I have several handouts and the list of stops that served as a guidebook.

    Happy Holidays!
    As I sit here and ponder warmer times, I regret my missing out on FOP field trips for 2017. Sure, I could of remembered to look at the FOP website to find out which sections were doing a field trip. Heck, it only took me till December 18, 2017 to finally check. Alas, a bit late.
    As such, if someone would be so kind as to add me to the list, I promise to bring some good scotch to our next gathering. :-)

    Hello. I would like to get on the FOP- Rocky Mtn Cell email list, if possible. It looks like you guys do some great trips and I would like to participate if I can.
    Thank you.

      if you are interested in the rocky mtn cell, try contacting one of the trip leaders from a previous trip. they may be able to put you in contact with the people running the next rocky mtn trip. if other cells provide trip information, i post that to the pac cell list.
