Lassen National Park is beautiful to see, during the split second of geologic time people walk on its seemingly quiet surface. But underground, a "battle zone" has existed for millions of years between two kinds of rocks-those that provide continents for us to live on, and those that undermine our homeland from beneath the seas. Employing analogies of warfare, this workshop will bring alive the interactions of two "armies" of transformational minerals that, along with a special "spy" working for both sides, have built landmarks of national significance. The workshop begins with a two-hour, in-class examination of the nature of the "armies," the "spy," and how they interact. The next day, we go out in person to the various parts of the "battlefield" we can examine in detail to check out mineral bodies and their resulting landforms.
