The formation of the Dolomites

The formation of the DolomitesIt’s hard to imagine that 280 million years ago, a place where today you can find flower fields and majestic peaks with hiking paths, bike trails or ski slopes, was inhabited by phytophagous dinosaurs of up to 3 meters, before their living environment was sucked up by the sea; they lived there for over incredible 200 million years.

Meanwhile the land has reconquered this space,Michael Wachtler which was long believed to be lost. It seems that the erstwhile impressive volcanic and ocean masses have disappeared. But actually, they haven’t. When taking a close look, one can spot numerous witnesses of long ago times…

In January 2012, we started a collaboration with the author and historian Michael Wachtler, to retrace the formation history of the Dolomites. Happy reading!
