Here’s a fantastic presentation of the geologic history of the western US, complete with very detailed maps. It’s things like this that make me wish we had lifespans of at least several hundred years. There are so many interesting things to learn, and only 100 years isn’t near long enough to learn them all.


  1. Common drunk-talk amoung geology students: “Man if they ever make time travel, I’m gonna put it in a Lay-Z Boy chair, set it to 200 million years ago and have it come forward a thousand years a second so that I can sit and watch THAT mountian rise! Pass me another Shaeffer, dude.”

  2. Hey, I’m putting that quote in my ‘book.’
    My radical ‘new’ quote (copyright) is:
    “Japan came from Utah!”
    Note: Horses and Camels may have rode along!
    (Screw “land bridges.) -And! I need to ‘adjust’
    currently accepted Time Tables.
    Thank you, Kestrel
