The field trip will traverse the highly asymmetrical Front Range to examine the west flank's major Laramide thrusts, subsequent volcanic rocks and normal faults, as well as the east flank's higher-angle thrust and reverse faults and their associated fault-propagation folds. Laramide to Holocene tectonics will be debated on the outcrop and during our evening soak at Hot Sulphur Springs.

This first volume in the series includes trips held in conjunction with the 1999 Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado, with more than 12 GSA-sponsored field trip guides presented in one volume. This year, the GSA Field Guide exposes readers to the beauty and diversity of the Colorado region, including trips focusing on sedimentology, hydrogeology, coal areas, tectonics, and other disciplines.
