In honor of Colorado Day, tomorrow, August 1, the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Scenic and Historic Byways program is “encouraging tourists to supplement their byway travels with reading.” Colorado boasts a number of byways that, while notable for their scenery alone, can mean so much more when the stories behind them are revealed. CDOT’s press release lists a number of publications that enhance the byways experience. Two of their suggested titles are Messages in Stone: Colorado’s Colorful Geology and The Western San Juan Mountains: Their Geology, Ecology, and Human History, both available for checkout from our library. Other publications about Colorado’s byways are also available for checkout from our library, including Colorado: The Official Guide to the Scenic and Historic Byways. Search our web catalog for more great titles.
