Look into the past of Zion, where rivers meet oceans, volcanoes erupt ash onto forests where dinosaurs live, and where deserts rival the Sahara. Short hikes will lead to an understanding of the geologic foundation of Zion. We’ll focus on exploring the continual cutting and shaping of the canyon. A look at landslides and rock falls that still occur in the park will give a sense of the ever-changing landscape. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain an in-depth appreciation of Zion’s “rock” past. Limited to 6 participants.
