A Halloween Challenge: Geo-Pumpkins

It’s fall, and there’s no better way to celebrate the season than to take a knife to a big, orange squash.

Since we’re all lovers of rocks, geology, and all things earth science here, I issue a challenge! Pick a pumpkin-appropriate, geology themed image, get out your carving knife and hack away.

When you’re done, light it up, take a snap shot and share it on your blog for all to admire. (If you don’t have a blog, you can tweet your images to me and I’ll display them with attribution in a future post on Uncovered Earth.)

As you can see, I’ve chosen a rock hammer as my subject. It was a small pumpkin, so I had to pick something simple and recognizable. You can get as creative and elaborate as you like. Consider a mountain landscape, a meandering river, or other tools of the trade (boots, hats, a clinometer?) The only limit is your imagination, and the brilliant canvas that is the pumpkin squash.

  1. How would you like to host the November Wedge with the theme of GeoPumpkins? There’s no reason you would have to wait until the end of the month, if you’d rather keep it in closer proximity to Halloween…
