The Bones of the Penokee Range

Rocks are the backbone of the Penokee Range. Washburn-based photographer Bob Gross is trying to give these not often seen pieces of the land a close up. Gross worked with Northland College geosciences professor Tom Fitz to create an exhibit of photographs.  Danielle Kaeding with Northland College radio station WRNC brings us the story of what Gross calls “The Bones of the Land.”

Wisconsin’s Story Through Geology:

To many of us, Wisconsin’s summer landscape is a haven for swimming, hiking, biking, and boating. But to a geologist, the land tells a richly illustrated narrative of cataclysm and rebirth. Geologist Marcia Bjornerud introduces us to the many stories she sees written on Wisconsin.

Commentator Marcia Bjornerud is a professor of Geology at Lawrence University, and the author of the Reading the Rocks: The Autobiography of the Earth.
