Bibliography and References Cited - Roadside Guide to Yosemite Valley

This web exploration is just an excerpt of the complete field trip that runs from Modesto to Hornitos, Highway 140 through Merced, the Merced River Canyon, through Yosemite Valley, and back to Modesto via Highway 120 and 132 (some of the references may not be noted on the web exploration). For information on purchasing the entire field guide (which includes several other field trips), please follow this link. Sales support scholarships for geology majors through the Far Western Section of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers. We appreciate your help!
