Some recollections of Neil Cooper about the 1976 camp

The 1976 field camp was my last hurrah before graduation in August of 76.  One of my memories is of getting a speeding ticket in Red Lodge (I was one of the official drivers) with a van full of slightly inebriated (never) geology students.  I paid the Montana State Trooper on the spot. 

My very best memory is of going down in a lead-zinc mine outside Park City, Utah with Dr. Ohmoto.  We signed the visitors log and were given an embossed brass tag to put in our coveralls. It matched the number near our signature.  When we asked what this was for, we were told, "in case your body is burned beyond recognition".  That was a great tour!!!
