Ancient Landscapes of the Colorado Plateau - An Exhibit at the Museum of Northern Arizona and a New Grand Canyon National Park Podcast

You've read "Ancient Landscapes" the book. Now see Ron Blakey's paleogeographic maps come alive in a new exhibit at the Museum of Northern Arizona. The exhibit opened on January 10 and will run through Labor Day and possibly longer. You can see an article about the the exhibit and the opening that ran in our local newspaper. Also, one of the Grand Canyon National Park rangers, Patrick Gammons, posted a podcast on the Park's official web page of a tour he made with me of the exhibit panels. Listen to Patrick's webisode here.

The exhibit contains 33 panels that highlight the many landscapes that once existed here. I've included a few pictures of some of the panels and although you will not be able to read the text here on the web, you can get a sense of the colorful nature of the exhibit. The next time you are in Flagstaff, stop by the Museum of Northern Arizona and see "Ancient Landscapes of the Colorado Plateau".
