Acknowledgements

 

I would like to thank the 67th Field Conference of Pennsylvania Geologists for the extensive knowledge I gained during their 2002 meeting in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania.  More than 100 professional geologists were patient and courteous in answering my questions.  Special thanks go to Gary Fleeger and Jon Inners for providing me with printed materials.
 I am most indebted to Dr. Duane Braun of Bloomsburg University, one of the trip organizers and field leaders, who shared time in the field with me so that I could understand the geology of my "backyard."
