A Quick Video Trip through Colorado Geology


Colorado used to be south of the equator — about 300 million years ago. Things were a little different then: "a low-lying area, periodically inundated by the ocean." 

Since I live smack on top  of (not beside) the Fountain Formation, it is nice to see it get some attention. 

Also  I like the image of Colorado 9 through Summit County with glaciers on it.

A project of the Interactive Geology Project at CU-Boulder, which has its own YouTube channel.
