Henry David Thoreau said geology is where we “discover the causes of all past changes in the present invariable order of society.” In so many ways science﹘be it chemistry, geology, astronomy, or biology﹘is the study of change over time; the intense pressure put upon a subject causing it to evolve from one state to another, and to grow from there. As a scientific species, we experience time travel not only when we send probes into space to experience the relativity of time and space, but each time we put a rock under the microscope.
At Asphalt Materials, we love the stories that rocks tell. Each one teaches us about what occurred in our valley millions of years ago and helps us appreciate the natural beauty found all over Utah. Over the years our customers have grown to value our various landscape supplies, and our various rock and sand options have elevated our asphalt company beyond just making blacktops.
