The scenic and varied landscape of southern Idaho records tales of cataclysmic floods, massive volcanic outbursts, huge glaciers, meteorite impacts, and ancient sequoia forests, as well as housing some of the oldest and youngest rocks in the western U.S. Join CSI geology professor and author, Shawn Willsey, as he unveils the inspiration, process, and stories of his new book, Geology Underfoot in Southern Idaho, a comprehensive guide to 23 fascinating geologic sites within the southern half of the Gem State.
