Great Dikes of the Spanish Peaks
The Great Dikes were formed about the same time as the Spanish Peaks, Mt. Mestas and Silver Mountain. At the time these formations were formed, they were located several miles underground below many layers of sedimentary rock. Over time, as the ground rose and the softer rock was eroded away, these igneous intrusions were exposed.
There are essentially three different sets of dikes. One set emanates radially from the West Spanish Peak. The second set emanates radially from Silver Mountain. The third set crosses the landscape in a roughly N80E direction. The dikes in this third set are roughly parallel to one another and are among the longest of the dikes.
