Segment Three: Mountains are the Wild Places of the Earth

This video segment takes students to the Rocky Mountains to experience the mountain top environment as it appears throughout the seasons. Students learn about forces that eventually reduce mountain peaks to rolling hills and valleys. In this video segment, students can experience the stark quiet of high country, the roar of winter wind and falling water, the peace of a snowbound forest and the beauty of towering peaks.
