During the Paleozoic time period spanning from to Fossils of marine plants and animals have even been found right in the Rocky Mountains! In time, this sea left behind layers upon layers kilometers deep of sedimentary deposits like limestone and dolomite.

Though the exact beginning and end of the sub-period is accepted as hard to pinpoint, about This sub-period is defined in North America as being marked by the rock bed formation of marine limestone, or simply a timeframe characterized by lowland continental deposits. Better study up! So, we had our Precambrian igneous rock already established in this area.

Over huge spans of time, parts of this rock were roughly eroded or metamorphosed. The region then received layers of sedimentary rock formation during the Paleozoic era and the Pennsylvania sub-period. Also during the Pennsylvanian, the ancestral Precambrian rock was disturbed by the natural mountain building processes of the Ancestral Rocky Mountains.

The metamorphic rock underneath Beauty at Redrocks forced upward through the limestone left over from the time when this area was underwater. The mountains further eroded through time leaving even more sediment exposed. The Fountain nonconformably covers that ancestral Precambrian rock I just talked about, much of what remains consisting of granite and gneiss. A nonconformity exists between sedimentary rocks and metamorphic or igneous rocks when the sedimentary rock lies above and was deposited on the pre-existing and eroded metamorphic or igneous rock.

See the difference in the rocks on the right side vs. Because of the mountain forming and erosion, in Colorado there are tons of jagged red rock structures especially hanging around the Front Range of the Rockies.

The red color comes from the granite Beauty at Redrocks gneiss from which the Fountain Formation was eroded. The Fountain Formation left us with the monoliths that a smart man with a vision once looked at and realized they were the perfect, NATURAL acoustic setting for an amphitheater with a one-of-a-kind view. Walker eventually set up a temporary stage platform and enticed many artists to perform between the years of and His pitch was a success, and inarchitect Burnham Hoyt was hired to de the amphitheater.

One can hike, bike, shop, dine, hear concerts and watch movies here. They are even doing a special showing of Purple Rain on May 12th! Groups and individuals also gather here to exercise by using the tall stairs leading down into the amphitheater. There seems to be a flourish of activity at almost any time of the day. The park is an area of land where the plains meet the mountains and this introduces a nice variety of landscape views. And lucky me, all I have to do is drive a couple miles down the road until Red Rocks comes into view!

When we visited Colorado in October before we moved here, we attempted to explore the Amphitheater but were one of the first people to be denied entry that day due to concert preparation for a show later that evening. But we did decide to do some hiking in Red Rocks Park and that was just as beautiful. These are a couple of my pictures from the trail:. We heard that in the warmer months, a rain in the mountains can result in landslides and general chaos leading a person into danger.

Or death. The particular day we hiked Red Rocks Park, it rained. Bad Company and Joe Walsh?! The Flaming Lips???? Holy bank ! Bob Dylan.
