This field course introduces students to the basic principles of geology through exploring the Front Range, using the world-class rock exposures found in this area. Students learn to identify rocks and minerals, as well as landscapes shaped by streams, wind, and glaciers. We study the vast expanse of geologic time in the context of the history of the Rocky Mountains. Field trips are a central part of this course. Prerequisite: ENV223.
