A World of Stone
The geology of the Western U.S. can’t be better witnessed than drifting through the region’s river canyons. OARS geology trips pair classic river trips in amazing environments with a special emphasis on the amazing rocks and structure and its complex history.
Led by expert geologists, these adventures dive into millions of years of geologic record written in layers of stone. See prehistoric oceans rise and fall, ancient volcanoes ooze molten lava and extinct now-fossilized critters crawl the earth.
Whether you’re looking for a light lesson or an examination of the fine details, join OARS for a fun exploration of the wonders of the earth’s evolution in the best classrooms nature has to offer.
Geology has inspired me to see the world differently. Every trip feels like a journey into the past—both in the geologic sense and the personal sense. It’s where my parents met and where some of my greatest life memories were formed.Zac Williams OARS guide and geologist
