Unlike any other tour in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, this adventure focuses on the spectacular geology and fascinating archaeology of the Valley of the Sun. You will take home more than memories; you will gain an understanding of what makes this part of the world so special. Travel past rock formations on Camelback Mountain that are separated by over a billion years of geologic time! See evidence of ancient cataclysmic landslides at Papago Park, now weathered into amazingly photogenic shapes. Visit one of the West’s most unusual geologic structures at South Mountain, and see the signature of great stretching forces that have shaped North America.
