Understanding "Ancient Landscapes" of the Colorado Plateauhttp://citizenschallenge.blogspot.com/2013/09/understanding-ancient-landscapes-of.html
Back, in 1979, through a series of serendipitous cross-country hitch-hiking adventures I found myself driving down into Silverton, Colorado (elevation 9,318') and it was love at first sight, the setting, the town, the people, the community. Before I went to sleep that evening I knew it was going to be home for a long time. Indeed, I lived there for six years going strong, when a woman's love proved stronger and down to the "banana-belt" I scampered.
From my Earth loving perspective, it seems that such a high-quality time-lapse movie 'Ancient Landscapes in Motion' could have an impact, akin to Apollo's 'Whole Earth'... and Voyager's 'Pale Blue Dot' images. But, rather than a single image re-calibrating our sense of space and Earth's place in the Universe, this human achievement would recalibrate our sense of time and place - to better appreciate humanity's tenure on this planet.
Dear Telluride, when can Professor's Blakey and Ranney expect your call?
In this lecture Wayne Ranney gives a nice introduction to the
"Ancient Landscapes" map series.
