Albuquerque is situated along the Rio Grande, near the juncture of five physiographic provinces: the southern Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains, the Colorado Plateau, the Rio Grande Rift, and the Basin and Range. Theme sessions and field trips reflect a full range of geologic topics — something for all interests and disciplines — including one-day trips to local outcrops and multiday trips to spectacular exposures and geologic problems.
Meeting participants and guests can discover more than 400 years of history and native New Mexican heritage in easy walking distance from the hotel. Adjacent to the hotel are over 150 shops, restaurants, and art galleries, including the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.
