Miri Geological Excursion

Before I write further, I'll just let everyone know that this activity was dated 6 years back. I was in Form 4 then. Still a teenager. :P

31st March 2001, I went to Miri Outcrop Museum together with few teachers and a group of students (mostly my classmates).

A small trip with this school bus.

I couldn't remember much about this trip though. I'll try my best to recall what has been done.

A group of students and teachers from S.M.K. St. Columba together with excursion guide.

Miri Outcrop Museum is a place where we are exposed to some of the geological stuff. It is located along the Miri Airport Road.

Listen what was being told by the guide.

This trip was organised by some of the Shell's staff.

Worm? Or dinosour?

I'm not a good student I admit. I forgot what's that long, brown line which was being explained by the guide. I think that "worm" was formed some hundred years ago.

From left to right (guys): Gerald, Chee Onn and Billy.

It was so hot, I still can remember. Even some of the guys brought their own umbrellas (not me :P).

All the students were so keen to learn.

We were given loads of information about the rocks and soil by the professional geologists.

I was looking at the camera instead of listening. :P

If I'm not wrong, my year was the one and only year they organised the trip. We were considered very lucky to be able to join it.

Walk and walk...

It was about a two to three hours trip. Overall, the trip was indeed very educational. It gave us an idea what a geologist would do.

And to boast a bit, I can still remember the guide told us that many well known geologists from all around the world has ever visited the Miri Outcrop Museum. ;)
