About this book

Colorado's Spanish Peaks are landmarks of unique beauty. The peaks and surrounding landscape possess a fascinating geologic history, as well as equally diverse human and natural histories. Much of the landscape is in public ownership and invites exploration. As the region's first comprehensive guide, this book provides an indispensable introduction to the area, with numerous maps, illustrations, and information on:

- Federal wilderness areas and other accessible lands.
- Human history ranging from early native occupation to post-Civil War origins of modern settlement.
- Geologic history, including a glossary, plus geographic and ecologic settings.
- Scenic drives, accompanied by a mileage log and descriptions of landmarks.
- Hiking trails, including some worthy destinations where no trails exist.
- Predators and other mammals, and checklists of amphibians, reptiles, and birds.
- Ferns, conifers, woody flowering plants, and herbaceous plants, totaling over 1000 named organisms.

The guide's utility is enhanced by appendices featuring preparations for outings, notes on Colorado trespass law, tips on mountain photography, and a source list for agencies and organizations. Finally, a detailed resource list is included, plus two indices, one for general subjects, the other for common and scientific names of plants and animals.
