The Dillon Pinnacles are one of those geologic wonders of Colorado. They are located along Blue Mesa Reservoir between Montrose and Gunnison. The Dillon Pinnacles are the remains of a caldera which was uplifted by the Gunnison Uplift. The caldera now forms the peaks of the rugged San Juan Mountains.
