Mountain Press Roadside Geology of Yellowstone Country - 2nd Edition
The 19 road guides in Roadside Geology of Yellowstone Country fully explore the volcanic pedigree of this park and other sites that have recorded the region's broad and deep geologic story.
- This completely revised second edition reexamines the region using the latest scientific thinking and now includes stunning full-color photos, maps and diagrams
- Includes parts of Montana and Idaho
Made in USA.
The road guides deliver you to such sites as exquisitely preserved, 50-million-year-old petrified trees buried in conglomerate; mountain-sized blocks of rock that slid more than 50 miles in a massive debris avalanche; the glacially carved craggy peaks and U-shaped valleys of the Beartooth Mountains and Absaroka Range; and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the excavation of which is still a mystery.
