Geology of the National Parks

Virtual Tours

From the swirling sands of Mojave National Preserve's Kelso Dunes to the brief, fiery growth of Sunset Crater Volcano, our National Parks preserve the showcases of our nation's right geological heritage. We invite you to explore a few of these very special places with us.

Take a virtual tour of one of the parks: climb the peaks of the North Cascades, use Lake Mead's history to learn about geologic time, or dig deeper into the geologic story of Death Valley. Click on the links below and start to explore.
