Geology

Monument Rocks.

20 miles South of Colby Kansas is Monument Rocks. A rock formation that is part of an ancient sea bed. If you are ever driving on I-70 in Kansas, I say make the detour. It’s worth the 30 minute excursion. Now it’s time to roll on to Colorado and Rocky Mountain National Park.

“The Weight of Mountains”, From Studiocanoe.

“All the good and evil things that happen in the world are of no consequence to the magnitude of their scale.”

It’s Friday, and I intend to step back and watch this short film from  again. It is a wonderfully shot and edited 12 minute short that is based upon the work of British geographer L. Dudley Stamp. It talks about the processes by which mountains are created and eventually destroyed. While that might sound boring, it is actually quite interesting, and the footage, which was shot on location in Iceland is rather amazing. There is great informative storytelling here with calming narration, and a musical score that soothes as you watch.
