Red Rock Rising

Season 1 Episode 105 | 26m 46s

In red rock country the Earth’s crust has been pushed up by the collision of two tectonic plates, lifting the land in one large block. Doug explores the rocks layers laid bare by eroding forces that sculpt the rising crust. Among the multi-colored rocks are arches, hoodoos, and canyons both grand and narrow, where Ancestral Puebloan structures and petroglyphs are safely tucked.
