Is it true that Chaffee County once was the home of a massive volcano? What geologic tale connects the “Castles” and Triad Ridge near Trout Creek Pass, Buffalo Peaks, Mt. Shavano and Mount Princeton?

Join local geologist Cindy Williams in the second of three lectures in Central Colorado Conservancy’s 2019 Conservation Lecture Series, where you’ll learn how local landscapes have been shaped by some amazing geologic events. The program will begin with a brief geologic history of the Chaffee County area, moving on to a virtual tour of landmarks across the county and beyond. If you’ve ever wondered about the formations you see and walk upon, you’ll come away with some good answers.

She has worked for 30 years in the international mining industry and served as Vice President of Business Opportunity Creation at Newmont Mining, the world’s largest gold mining company, working in 13 countries. She holds a BSc and MSc in Economic Geology from Colorado State University.
