But, to understand how they came to be, one must look at the history of the region as a whole. Utah first emerged after the Hadean eon as a mass of metamorphosed rock, with the oldest found rock in Utah dating to .

The Uinta Mts. are almost totally part of national forests. North Central Utah Heber Valley is a true “Four Season” destination beautifully situated between the towering Wasatch and Uinta mountain ranges amidst gorgeous lakes, blue-ribbon trout streams and top rated golf courses.

  Hence, Mountain Geomorphology represents a timely and unique contribution to the literature.
