2016 Geology of Big Red Mountain

Instructor: Jad D'Allura, Ph.D
Date: Saturday, July 23, 2016
Location: Meet at Ray's Market in Talent, OR
Tuition: $55


Drink in spectacular views as we hike and peel back a complex geologic history obscured by the veil of time. Red Mountain, and many other adjacent rocks, were born millions of years ago in an oceanic and mantle environment, then folded, faulted, and further abused into discrete blocks. The largest block is the nutrient-poor serpentine of Red Mountain, which contains mysterious black rocks called amphibolites. As a bonus, on the east side of Red Mountain we’ll learn the history of the “young” 160 million year old granite of the Mount Ashland pluton. This field course will involve a moderate hike of four miles round trip along the Pacific Crest Trail plus car travel to and from.
