About The Book
The transition from 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. In Geology Underfoot along Colorado�s Front Range, the most recent addition to the Geology Underfoot series, authors (and geoscientists) Lon Abbott and Terri Cook narrate the Front Range�s tale, from its humble beginnings as a flat, nondescript seafloor through several ghostly incarnations as a towering mountain range. The book�s 21 chapters, or vignettes, lead you to easily accessible stops along the Front Range�s highways and byways, where you�ll meet the apatosaur and other dinosaurs who roamed the floodplains and beaches that once covered the Front Range; look for diamonds in rare, out-of-the-way volcanic pipes; learn how America�s mountain, Pikes Peak, developed from molten magma miles below the surface only to become an important visual landmark for early Great Plains� travelers; and walk the Gangplank, a singularly important plateau for both nineteenth-century westward expansion and our understanding of the Front Range�s most recent exhumation. A healthy dose of full-color illustrations and photos demystify the concepts put forth in the authors� elegant, insightful prose. With Geology Underfoot along Colorado�s Front Range in hand, you�ll feel like you�re traveling through time as you explore the Front Range�s hidden geologic treasures.
