Roadside Geology of Colorado 2ND Editionby Halka Chronic
Synopses & Reviews
Informative travel companions about roadside terrain and geology with photos, diagrams, and glossary.
Book News Annotation:
Updating the 1980 edition, this non-technical new volume offers expanded coverage, updated maps, new photographs, and the most current geologic interpretations of the tumultuous geological history of Colorado's mountains, plateaus, and plains. A wonderful companion for trips to the Rocky Mountain National Park, Dinosaur National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, and many other sites.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
The geology of Colorado has not changed much since the first edition of Roadside Geology of Colorado in 1980, but our understanding of the billion-year-old Precambrian granites and gneisses that form the core of the Rocky Mountains has. That's not all that's changed in this reader-friendly new edition: half of the photographs are new; all the maps have been updated; and seven new road guides lead you on spectacular trips.
