Friends of Gold Butte
Join the Friends of Gold Butte for an interesting and informative segment of our popular Gold Butte Speaker Series, featuring presentations on a variety of subjects pertaining to the Mojave Desert and Gold Butte National Monument. This month we are pleased to have Cliff and Ilene Bandringa speak about the Geologic Triple Junction of Southern Utah.
Visitors to the tri-state regions of Arizona, Nevada and Utah, especially Southwest Utah, see a wide variety of landscapes and scenery like no other. Many people wonder how so much beautiful scenery came to exist in one place. This presentation will show you the “pieces of the puzzle” that created most of that beautiful scenery.
Before attending the presentation though, it would be helpful for you to watch a YouTube video first. It will provide animated maps and other helpful information that simply can’t be provided in a slide presentation. Google “Geologic Triple Junction of Southern Utah” to watch the video. After the (live) presentation, questions from the audience will be answered.
Ilene & Cliff Bandringa have been roaming the back roads of the Southwest for over 20 years. From those travels, they’ve accumulated a vast amount of knowledge of the places they’ve visited. They are the authors and creators of BackRoadsWest.com, which focuses on the lesser-known and off-the-beaten-path places. The website is a collection of on-line travel guides, articles, quality imagery and YouTube videos. Cliff & Ilene live in Southwest Utah, just outside of Zion National Park.
