Geology of the Landscape

Geology, of course, underlies all landscapes. Understanding geology can help us understand an area in the past, present, and future.

Arizona is a great place to see the geology under the landscape. In the southern half of the state, the desert is more sparsely covered by plants, so the rocks underneath can be more easily seen. Even in the forests throughout the state, there are fewer covered areas so we can see that geology as well.
