Geology Underfoot along Colorado's Front Range

by

Lon Abbott and Terri Cook

The transition form the relatively flat Great Plains to the craggy peaks of Colorado's Front Range is one of North America's most abrupt topographical contrasts. The epic, 1,800-million-year geologic story behind this amazing landscape is even more awe inspiring. The 21 chapters, or vignettes, in Geology Underfoot along Colorado's Front Range narrate this tale, from the Front Range's humble beginnings as a flat nondescript seafloor through several ghostly incarnations as towering mountain ranges.  

Some of the sites included:

Big Thompson Canyon, Cave of the Winds, Cripple Creek, Dinosaur Ridge, Eldorado Canyon State Park, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and garden of the Gods just to name a few.
