School has started off pretty well, and since I'm now taking a good multivitamin, I am staying awake in all my classes except for Biogeography which is exceptionally boring. So boring that spell check doesn't even recognize its existence.
This afternoon, my Quaternary Geology class went to [abandoned] Cantley Quarry [in, you guessed it, Cantley!] which is in Quebec. I learned today that while the class for me is considered a 3rd year geography class [which I'm taking with 6 of my fellow 4th year friends] but it is also considered a 2nd year geology class, which is why it is packed to the brim with the wee childrens. Well, since it is mainly a geology class, the geology students [see: childrens] actually knew what was going on, and us older [see: awesome] geography students were totally clueless. But what we did have on our side was a previous trip to Cantley Quarry in the 2nd year geography class Geomorphology. Take that, childrens.
We looked at a large hunk of marble which is covered with striations thanks to glacial erosion. With our trusty compasses, we measured the orientation of them. Like 3 of them. And the numbers were a little more varied than they probably should be. Oh well.
This is the quarry itself. Can I get an ooo and/or ahh? Remember, I've been to this pathetic hole TWICE now.
This is Kerri thinking "What the hell are we supposed to do, and why do the childrens know but we don't?"
This friendly fellow is an example of glacial quarrying. Quarrying in a quarry! Oh my! But the ice did it! Oh my again!
This object is a rat and tail, and is totally iconic in the uOttawa geography department since we see pictures of it constantly in classes, and we have now visited it twice. TWICE.
This is a lovely feature, no?
This is me because I bring out the true awesomeness of Cantley Quarry.
