    To the west of the Colorado Rockies lay the Great Colorado Plateau which was bodily uplifted but without perceptable folding of the underlying rocks. Between the Colorado Plateau and the Rocky mountain region several thrust faults were developed. One of the best known of these is the one lying along the front of the Sawatch Range. * show accepted USGS usage.

The rocks of the Colorado Plateau represent a diversity of environmental conditions over hundreds of millions of years. These rocks are well exposed in the many canyons that occur across this region, most spectacularly in the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona (Figure ).The oldest fossils known from the Colorado Plateau region are stromatolites —layered domes of carbonate sediment formed by.

The southern boundary of the Colorado Plateau is the Mogollon Rim, an escarpment capped by Permian-age Kaibab Limestone and Coconino Sandstone, and locally by Tertiary basalt flows. The escarpment rises about 3, feet above low lands south of the rim in the mountainous “transition zone" between the Colorado Plateau and the Basin and Range.

These layers of sandstone, shale and limestone were originally formed on the bottom of shallow seas that covered the state a number of times throughout the history of the North American.
