On Tuesday, December 22 at 9 pm PST, a documentary titled How the Earth was made will be presented in the History channel. The show will contain a large section on the geology of Yosemite National Park and climber and geologist Bryan Law will be featured on the show.
The History channel describes the show saying, "The Sierra Nevada, North America's highest mountain range, contains one of the most awe-inspiring geological features on the planet: Yosemite Valley. Walled by sheer 3,000-foot granite cliffs and made from one of the toughest rocks on earth, it is home to the mighty El Capitan and iconic Half Dome. Yet how this extraordinary valley formed has been the subject of controversy for over 100 years. Was it carved by gigantic glaciers or a cataclysmic rifting of the Earth?"
The feature will contain some interesting footage and great information about the park's geology.
