The GSA Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City provided a large and diverse terrain for field trips. This volume contains 22 field trip articles, nearly all of those run at the 2005 meeting. All combine the latest research with useful road logs to spectacular and often classic geologic settings. The regional tour has a core of structure and stratigraphy-paleontology contributions, and is rounded off with volcanic, glacial, lacustrine, fluvial geomorphology, neotectonic, geologic hazard, and geoarchaeology articles.
