To those in the know, even a stone by the side of a hiking trail can tell you quite a lot about its origins - and those origins trace back remarkably far. In this course, you'll learn all about rock-forming minerals; the rock cycle; and igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. You'll also take your knowledge into the field to study local geography and collect a variety of ancient stones, including 1.4-billion-year-old Belt quartzite, 50-million-year-old Challis porphyritic volcanics, and 6-million-year-old Columbia River basalt!
