In this roadside guide, popular lecturer, tour leader, and author Kirt Kempter makes geology interesting through his riveting explanations and engaging diagrams. Kempter presents the geology of the caldera landscape as you drive across it. A topographical map provides detailed information for every visitor, whether a scientist, a hiker, a cross-country skier, a fly fisherman, a hunter, or a curious admirer of nature's wonders.
"The guide moves beyond its topographic maps to include crisp diagrams and an accompanying narrative that never leaves that sweet spot between education and road-trip conversation."—Santa Fe New Mexican
