Course Overview

We will cover a number of geology-type parks, from canyon parks (Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce) to mountain parks (Guadalupe Mountains, Rocky Mountains, Yosemite, Grand Tetons), to volcanic parks (Mt. Rainier/Mt. St. Helens, Hawaiian Islands) to cave parks (Carlsbad, Mammoth) to sand dunes (Great Sand Dunes, White Sands). In order to understand the different geologic features in American parks, we will first learn the basics principles of geology – about the three types of rocks (igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary) and how they form and about plate tectonics being the driving force for the geology we see on planet Earth.
