The Durango Colorado area exhibits a fascinating variety of landscape scenery which is largely a function of the area’s underlying geology and geologic history. These scenic wonders have been created by the interaction of earth materials and earth processes over hundreds of millions of years. The objective of this course is to enhance your appreciation of the area’s landscapes by providing a basic knowledge of the geology behind the scenery. The course includes eight hours of classroom instruction and a one day geological field trip.
