Places to Explore


For many of us, field trips are a highlight of GTC membership. The office of GTC Vice President carries the responsibility for coordinating certain aspects of field trips. Even though many of our traditional field trips are not looking possible right now, we want to preserve the spirit of field trips and encourage planning and dreaming about field trips for the future.

What kind of field trip captures your imagination…could it be one of the trips on the list in the Gazette, a recent Club newsletter…a trip to a ghost town you have never visited…or maybe a favorite GTC trip from the past that is worth doing again?  Also, even though we can’t visit a particular place in person, we might be able to visit it online, participate in an online event, or read information about a particular ghost town or related subject. In this spirit, we hope members will choose to share online event notices and other links about ghost towns as well as your field trip dreams or ideas.

We have enjoyed the many things that members have submitted to the Gazette the last few months and look forward to other interesting written articles, or email submissions, especially those about ghost towns. Contact us via email if you have suggestions.
