The Guidebook above to Permafrost and Quaternary Geology: Richardson and Glenn Highways, Alaska, from T.L. Pewe and R.D. Reger was used as a guide traveling down the Richardson Highway. In addition participants were given a packet of supplemental materials including quads for each area travelled through, edited to include the field trip stops, along with other informational pamphlets.
The Denali Fault Field Trip was the inaugural trip, in which the FOP Alaska Cell was born. It was all started when Evan Thoms volunteered his time to be trip leader and get the program running.
Organized by the Alaska Division of Geology and Geophysical Surveys and the AQC, the Denali Fault Field Trip took place on the 5-6th of September, 2004.
