This blog explores Colorado geophenomena by focusing on geology, mineralogy, paleontology, and other related Earth science topics. Gemstone sites in the Pikes Peak region are examined. Dinosaur and other fossils in Colorado are investigated. Current research on the mammoth remains and the Ice Age pollen found at the Florissant fossil beds is shared. Essays on Colorado mining are on this blog. Sometimes there will be poetry related to Earth science.
