This region owes its mineral riches and spectacular landscapes to the restless earth beneath it. Segments include:
  • You Are Here: Understanding Maps: The mountains, canyons, trees, and rivers of the West provide geologists with an illustrated timeline of the events that shaped this rugged land.
  • Earthquakes and Volcanoes: Investigate the powerful tectonic forces that created the dramatic topography of the region.
  • The Gold Rush: See how the discovery of a small nugget of gold in California in the 1800s spawned a westward migration that eventually spread to the Klondike area of Alaska.
