‘Tripping Over the Mountain’ with Jeri Jones
Trip over the mountain—South Mountain—and discover its incredible geologic story! Join us for a Geological Journey with Jeri: Five Stops from Carroll Valley to Monterey Pass, and Points In Between.
From being involved in the breakup of an ancient supercontinent 750 million years ago, to a shallow ocean environment, followed by an African-North American collision—and finally, intense weathering and erosion, South Mountain today stands tall.
