About this website:

This website was created to fulfill the requirements of an assignment to create a website about the geology of a North Carolina State Park.  The class, Geology of National Parks, was held at Guilford College, Greensboro, NC in the Fall of 2008.  It was created as an example page for the assignment by Nathan Lyons and Edward Skip Stoddard, the teacher's assistant and the professor of the class, respectively.

The photographs and text were later utilized as part of the Geology of State Parks website project. Contact Phil Bradley for information:
