This trip integrates the geomorphic, botanic, and hydrogeologic aspects of diverse ground-water and surface-water systems of the Geneva Creek sub-basin near Guanella Pass, Colorado. Fracture-flow crystalline bedrock systems, and alluvial, colluvial, and glacial systems are integrated for slope and riverine wetland structure and function. Current research regarding the development of the Wetlands Integrated Hydrologic Analysis method for delineating wetlands structure and function in the southern Rocky Mountains is discussed with respect to various sites observed along the field trip route.
