Geology of Utah's parks and monuments (UGA-28)

Utah Geological Association

Third Edition

Edited by: D. A. Sprinkel, T. C. Chidsey Jr., and P. B. Anderson

For decades geologists have come to Utah to study its geology and to explore for a variety of geologic resources. Of those geologic resources, the well-exposed geology itself is the most important resource that Utah has to offer to future generations of geologists, to people interested in geology, and to its citizens. Simply put, Utah has some of the most spectacular examples of classic geology found anywhere in the world! The geologic examples studied from here are used in classrooms as well as corporate boardrooms. Some of the best of Utah geology are showcased in its many national and state parks, monuments, and recreation areas. Places such as Arches, Bryce, Canyonlands, and Zion are well known for their grand geology and inspiring geologic vistas. But other parks such as Capitol Reef, Dinosaur, Goblin Valley, and Snow Canyon are equal in geologic majesty to their more visited counterparts.

The Utah Geological Association published the first edition of this guidebook in 2000, with the second edition being published in 2003. This third edition is a substantial revision as it is the desire of the UGA to keep the guidebook geologically current and relevant for those who aer interested in Utah’s geologic parks.
