05-14-2016 Keith Norlin: Geology of SW Parks

About the Talk

Armchair Geology of Zion, Bryce & Grand Canyon National Parks

During this hour-long lecture we sat back, learned some geologic history, and enjoyed a photographic field trip to some of America’s most magnificent landscapes. We took a virtual field trip to Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon National Parks without getting our boots dirty. You can leave your rock hammer at home but bring your curiosity and questions.
