Look carefully around you and think about what you may see. Many great as well as many ordinary discoveries have been made by looking at or considering commonplace objects in some new way. Such objects almost always contain some astounding feature just waiting to be seen. Although seeing things in a new way some times requires specialized equipment, often all that is needed is an open-minded visual inspection of ordinary objects, such as the geology-related features described in this book. There are more around you if you look for them.
The map on the last page will help you locate the features described here . One word of caution, however: the buildings and features described in this book are private property. Do not take specimens or otherwise damage them in any way.
