This event has already occurred.
The molten domes of magma that cooled to form our outcrops were generated from the heat and friction at the edges to colliding continental plates about 500 million years ago. Walk along the granite to see endangered plant species blooming and mosses and lichens that take 25 years to grow 1 square inch. Meet at the Visitors Center. $5 parking.
