A geologist discovered an exciting object that had fallen from a nearby cliff while winding through a trail in the Grand Canyon’s red cliffs. The massive object was torn from an ancient rock formation that contained an astonishing secret, which dates back to millions of years ago. After noticing the item, the geologist snapped a photograph of what he had found. The impact that this one photograph had is extraordinary, as it has gone on to kickstart a chain of events that’s undoubtedly changed the knowledge we have about Arizona in prehistoric times. This is what was discovered.
The Bright Angel Trail
This all started when the cliff face along the Grand Canyon’s Bright Angel Trail collapsed, which caused a boulder to tumble down to the path located below. Many tourists and hikers have entirely disregarded this piece of rock even though it was hiding something special.
The Right Knowledge
It wasn’t until the person with the right knowledge came across the rock to see the value of this boulder. This person was Allan Krill, who is a geologist. He began to suspect that he had stumbled on a remarkable find.
