Visit the Byways with Books

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.
