Life in a Giddy World
A Giddy World

Hudson Valley Geology

  • Ian Giddy leads a visual tour of our region's geology, and the rocks that tell the tale of history.
  • A brief overview of the last 1.3 billion years in the Hudson River Valley, from the days when the land was buried beneath the sea, rose up, crumbled, was pushed up again, collapsed in fiery volcanic eruptions, dinosaurs wandered across the land, and the whole lot was later buried under tons of ice. Our beautiful Hudson Valley emerged from under that crushing burden about 12,000 years ago, only to be faced with the cataclysmic collapse of Wall Street!
