Letter: Geology rocks!

Thanks to Garry Zabel at Colorado Mountain College I have just experienced the trip of a lifetime when I visited Zion, Bryce and the Grand canyons. As an amateur geologist, I went originally to see the rocks in these fantastic parks. After the initial car camping part, we backpacked into the depths of the Earth to see the fantastic geology. As a bonus I experienced the unforgettable sunrises and the nightly stars, meteors and fireballs. I learned a huge amount of geology and had a lot of fun with my fellow students who are all now firm friends. I am in love with the canyons.

This CMC geology class runs every September and needs adding to anybody’s bucket list who is at all interested in experiencing this unique place.
