On behalf of the Mid-Continent Section of AAPG and the Panhandle Geological Society, I invite you to join us in Amarillo, Texas for "ON THE ROCKS – PALO DURO CANYON" on October 5-7, 2012. Showcasing this three day field conference will be a hiking tour of one of the most spectacular geologic laboratories in Texas, where you will explore the Permo-Triassic fluvial depositional sequences of Palo Duro Canyon, consisting of colorful sandstones, shales, and evaporites.

Also featured will be a short course, technical sessions, and a beautiful sunset dinner in the Canyon. Highlighting the conference will be speakers and field trip leaders that include prominent AAPG members Ted Beaumont, Lee Krystinik, and George Asquith.

An optional tour of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas will wrap up the conference on Sunday morning where you will see a renowned exhibit of the historical oil and gas industry in the Texas Panhandle.
