A virtual field trip is like a guided ranger walk describing the geography, geology, flora, fauna, and history of an area. It is usually structured around a series of panoramic and close-up images with accompanying maps, charts, and text providing a detailed explanation of what is shown in each picture. This virtual field trip is designed to provide an educational online tour of the Kelso Dunes in the Mojave Desert of California. It is based on a real field trip that was taken on March 13, 2010.
