George A. Wheeldon - Professional Geologist. College Professor, Mining History Expert and "Field Trip Sauntering Guru"
George has been a resident of northern California's geographically diverse and scenic El Dorado County since the early 1960s. There, he has pursued his boyhood passion for discovering how "stuff works" as he says, and especially for uncovering the secrets of Earth's foundation -- Rocks.
A student, teacher, professional geologist and all-around curiosity seeker, George has amassed an amazing storehouse of knowledge that he shares on a daily basis with his students, colleagues, and friends.
On these web pages, George has assembled information about his activities that might be of interest to people who live in the Sierra Nevada.
