Taos, New Mexico – Tasa Graphic Arts, Inc. today is thrilled to announce the release of Grand Canyon National Park Geology Tour 1.0, its new travel app for iPad. Grand Canyon National Park Geology Tour is a photographic tour of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon with an emphasis on the geology. Written and narrated by geologist Deborah Ragland, Ph.D. with photographs and illustrations by Dennis Tasa, the app gives insight into the geology of one of America’s most spectacular parks and the surrounding region: the Colorado Plateau.

View the Grand Canyon in a new light. Not only will you look down from high elevations to the river below, but you will also look through time. Learn why the rocks display those magnificent colors, find out how the interesting pinnacles and buttes formed, study the different rock layers and their ages, and more.

Either as a supplement to your visit or as a planning tool, Grand Canyon National Park Geology Tour provides an extensive description of the geology of the park. Listen to the narration as you visit the overlooks or hike the trails, study the photos and illustrations before your visit, or just take a virtual trip.
