Course Description

The Wasatch Range forms one of the West's grand scenic backdrops, but what stories do the rocks have to tell? And what clues do geologists use to unravel the mysteries of the Earth's distant past? We'll learn to recognize telltale signs of the origins of different rock layers and explore how the face of the Wasatch has changed dramatically through time. We'll see how glaciers, Lake Bonneville, and the Wasatch fault have shaped the modern landscape. A half-day field trip along the foot of the mountains will provide an opportunity to get our hands on the rocks.
