Can Rocks Talk? Geology's Story From the Bottom of Glenwood Canyon to the Grottos

Join Garry Zabel on a geologic tour of our valley! Traveling from 1.7-billion-year-old granite, gneiss and schist to 10,000-year-old glacial features, Garry explores the local Grand Staircase: a geologic cross section stretching from ancient rocks in the Glenwood Canyon, to middle age rocks in Carbondale and Basalt, to recent glacial features in the Aspen and Grottos area. Learn about our amazing local geology and how rocks talk to us!
