Only for Geologists

Okay, Amber says I'm crazy. Perhaps. What can I say except that we are sitting on a patio and looking at some of the most beautiful geologic structures I have ever seen. So I'm a bit absorbed by them. Later, I hope to post pictures to show you what I mean. Trento is in the heart of the Dolomites, about which I know almost nothing. But I can recognize compressional faults and folds when I see them --- as grand as any that you'll ever look at. You won't see anything like it elsewhere, except perhaps in the Canadian Rockies. I showed them to some of the kids; a bit of a novelty. Only crazy geologists are likely to look twice.
