Southern Utah's magnificent, enigmatic landforms are famous worldwide. But what carved the goblins in Goblin Valley, the dome at Capitol Reef, Zion's towering sandstone walls, and Bryce's hoodoo fairyland - not to mention all those arches and natural bridges? Geology Underfoot in Southern Utah explores the stories behind 33 sites, some well known, others off the beaten path. With this book in hand, marvel at tales of ancient eruptions, deserts, seas, and swamps; the movements of massive rock units over eons; and the rock's interactions with life above it, including humankind. Along the way, visit dinosaur trackways, old mines, rock glaciers, oysters in the desert- and more.
