“Torrey Canyon Geology Adventure Trek” July 9 9-2pm
Join us in exploring the geologic record of mountain building and basin formation in Torrey Canyon on July 9th from 9-2pm.
Join us to explore the geologic record of mountain building and basin formation in Torrey Canyon. There, we will examine ancient igneous and metamorphic rocks that underlie northwest Wyoming. We will discuss and see evidence for how these rocks were brought to the surface at ~65 to 50 million years ago forming the Wind River Range and Wind River Basin and explore the other incredible geological features that exist in Torrey Valley. Other features include the rock record of ancient landscapes, as well as more recent glacial activity. You will need hiking boots, water, lunch, bear spray, bug spray and trekking poles. Social distancing will be encouraged.
