June 13, 1936

Seven members and three guests were present on this trip. The interesting associations along the railroad tracks and adjoining woods at Charlottesburg were studied and then the territory adjacent to Echo Lake. Kanouse Mountain was climbed and on its summit Dr. B. T. Butler gave a most interesting and instructive talk of the geology of the region, pointing out the remarkable character of the Green Pond conglomerate (Silurian age) which makes up this and one adjacent ridge, surrounded on all sides by ridges of Archean rock.
