I never took a geology class per se, but I did take oceanography and we examined a lot of rocks and sand particles our Thursday afternoon labs. I know the ocean is a far cry from our highest mountains, but really it’s not as far as you many think. They are remarkable linked due to the rock cycle.
I like this video for many reasons- one is that I happen to live in the Pacific Northwest where there are mountains on either side of where I’m currently living. As anyone who’s been reading my blog for a while will know, I love going up into the mountains and hiking as much as possible in the summer. Another reason I love this video is the animation and the presence of Mt. Kilimanjaro- a mountain that I have actually summited, and Ojos del Salado in Chile, which I’ve looked at from a distance. It all boils down to the fact that mountains make me feel at home and I love that someone has created an ode to these magnificent natural monuments.
