RockTalk: POGIs in Colorado


This edition of RockTalk is a guide for special Points of Geological Interest (POGIs) across Colorado. Digital PDF download. RT-09-01D

From the Introduction:

Colorado’s Magnificent POGIs

In this special issue of RockTalk, we highlight POGIs where there are guided activities in the form of interpretive presentations, hikes, or tours; self-guiding hikes or drives; museum exhibits; roadside displays; or educational seminars where geology is a primary topic of interest.

Given this broad definition, there are dozens of guided, POGI-related activities for your enjoyment in Colorado. Most are available in the summer, coincident with the tourist season. However, once you’ve experienced a guided activity in these areas, it is easy to return to enjoy these areas during different seasons. A little bit of instruction can go a long way!
