Field Trips

Formal field trips are not scheduled for the CEREC conference. However, weather and access permitting, we will organize one or more informal trips to the White Mountains or other destinations, depending on interest. Please contact Jeff Holmquist (jholmquist@ucsd.edu) if you would like to participate. Please note that there is an approximately 50:50 chance that the road to the White Mountain Field Stations will be blocked by snow in early November.

Field Trip notices will be posted on this page.


Field Trip to the White Mountains Sunday Nov 9 at 8:00 am, weather permitting. We will be checking road access on Monday Nov 3 after the recent snowfall. Details Cancelled (bad weather).

Field Trip: Relocating Timothy O'Sullivan's 1871 photographic views of Camp Independence, Independence, CA.

Join artist/scientist Gary Reese (College of Southern Nevada/Plaza Gallery/ENTRIX) in a mid-day reconnaissance of the former Camp Independence, north of Independence, CA. This historic California military post was decommissioned in 1877 and the buildings moved elsewhere, but you'll be given reproductions of pictures from the National Archives, taken in 1871 of the Camp and surrounding landscape. With your help in re-locating famous Civil War photographer Timothy O'Sullivan's photopoints, Reese will then demonstrate the techniques of view camera re-photography - an approach useful in visually determining cultural and environmental changes to the landscape.

Date and time: TBD, Noon
