New Mexico Geological Society
Fall Field Conference Guidebook - 17
Taos-Raton-Spanish Peaks Country, New Mexico and Colorado


Stuart A. Northrop and Charles B. Read, eds., 1966, 128 pages (Reprinted 1996).

The 17th Field Conference of the New Mexico Geological Society convenes in an area of unusual diversity. We will visit a large newly opened mine operating in Tertiary intrusive rocks; we will see and examine volcanic, intrusive, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks of many types in several different provinces; we will see and discuss complex and controversial structures, and consider stratigraphic sequences ranging in age from Precambrian to Recent. We will see also scenery of unparalleled beauty and we will enjoy the comradeship of those fellow geologists whom we have come to know through past conferences, and those we will meet for the first time on this excursion. The first day road log is from Taos to Questa, Red River, Elizabethtown, Cimarron, and Raton. The second day road log is from Raton to Capulin Mountain National Monument, Folsom Man State Monument, and return to Raton. The third day road log is from Raton, New Mexico through Colorado to Questa, New Mexico via Raton Pass, Spanish Peaks, Huerfano Park, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and San Luis Valley.
