SO! Monthly Meeting: Exploring the spectacular landscape scenery across the Navajo Nation

The Navajo Nation is the largest Native American Nation/Reservation in the United States by far covering parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. This vast area exhibits some of the most spectacular landscape scenery in the entire Colorado Plateau. This presentation will explore many of these landscape features with a view towards the basic geologic events that led to the creation and present day expression of these features.
