This field trip guide examines large structural features along the Front Range. Digital PDF download. FT-04-01D

From the Summary:

Laramide folds in the sedimentary rocks along the northeastern flank of the Front Range uplift are quite varied, including both symmetrical and asymmetrical anticlines and synclines; as well as domes, basins, and monoclines. These structures are a microcosm of the Wyoming Province of the Rocky Mountain Foreland. Exceptional exposures along the flank of the Front Range make it possible to observe the relations of the brittle deformation of the Proterozoic crystalline rocks to the ductile deformation of the Phanerozoic strata.
