The authors and editors of this book explored the many roadsides and parks of the Upper Peninsula in order to guide you. The book is in full color and there are over fifty stops that will help you identify bedrock outcrops and places of mining interest, as you explore this majestic land.

Roadside Geology of Nevada

ISBN: 0878426728
Release Date: 2017
Genre: Science

Driving through Nevada, you may be miles from nowhere, but you are never far from an interesting rock, the shoreline of an ice age lake, or an active or historic mine. The Silver State has some of the most diverse geology in the United States, and much of it lies in plain sight thanks to the arid climate of the Great Basin. Geologic forces continue to shape Nevada, stretching it apart and bringing magma near the surface. Earthquakes periodically rock its lonely outposts, creating some of the biggest fault scarps in the world. With the help of Roadside Geology of Nevada, you can appreciate geologic features along more than thirty of Nevada's highways.
