This self-guided geologic trip will lead you through times when inland seas, ancient mountains, vast mud flats, sandy deserts, and massive glaciers ruled Utah's landscape. You will learn how colliding crustal plates changed Utah's face, how the metallic ores of the Park City and Big Cottonwood Canyon mining districts formed, how regional geological structures affect our local geology, and why the sheer walls of Big Cottonwood Canyon are so different from the tame, rolling hills of the Park City area.<\p>
