The third edition of this popular guide is now even better—it’s full color. Colorado’s multihued rocks—from white and red sandstones to green shales and pink granites—are vividly splashed across the pages in stunning color photographs. Detailed color maps and diagrams clearly distill the state’s complex bedrock geology. Updated text includes information about new discoveries, such as the mastodons and other Pleistocene fossils found at Snowmass, and new parks, such as Chimney Rock National Monument. Roadside Geology of Colorado is a must-have for any Colorado rock enthusiast.
