Discover some of the great geological treasures of Utah, many in our own backyard. This course will consist of six geological photo workshops. Utilizing a framework of the geology of Utah, we will look at Big Cottonwood Canyon and Little Cottonwood Canyon, discovering how the Pleistocene glaciation in North America created outstanding skiing terrain. We will explore the Island Mountains, extending from western Utah into eastern Nevada. Once connected by Lake Bonneville, each range is now an isolated ecosystem--lonesome, isolated jewels in the desert. Finally, we will explore the geology and archeological treasures of Bears Ears National Monument, the home of the Ancestral Puebloans. Each workshop will change the way you see your world in Utah.
