The rocks of the Mohawk and Hudson Valleys of upstate New York tell a fascinating story, both through the rock layers themselves, as well as the life contained within them. Each individual outcrop, while interesting in many ways, pales in comparison to the story that unfolds when many of the units are compared and contrasted regionally. What comes to the surface is a story of tropical seas, violent ... Full description.
