The northeastern Front Range provides an excellent test of Laramide tectonic hypotheses. This trip will feature moderate hikes to excellent exposures of basement-involved structures. We will integrate new fault and balancing data into a model for backlimb deformation in basement-cored foreland arches.

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.
