Pages of Stone: How the American Southwest was Formed
It’s true that rocks tell stories. They may be silent, but those who learn to read them are privy to astonishing narratives! Nowhere is this more true that in the otherworldly red rock deserts of the American Southwest. When you stand before the columnar hoodoos of Bryce Canyon or the Jurassic sandstone walls towering 2,000-3,000 feet above the valley floor in Zion, when you ponder several billion years of Earth’s history revealed in the layers of the Grand Canyon, it’s hard to imagine any single region on the planet as captivating or as beautiful. Join Nat Hab Expedition Leader Court Whelan on a journey over the Colorado Plateau, visiting iconic national parks and lesser-known backcountry as he reveals each chapter of life on Earth as told in these stone stories.
