Form a panorama. Park City monocline shows monoclinal structure of sedimentary formations. Weber quartzite in foreground, Park City formation capping first spur. Thaynes formation on the second and third cuestas, and heavy Triassic sandstone forming the prominent cuesta in the right background, all dipping northwest. Park City in middle ground; Ontario mill in left foreground, and Silver King mine and Crescent Ridge in left background, looking southwest. Summit County, Utah. Circa 1904.

Thin bedded dolomite of the Goodsprings formation (upper Cambrian) thrust upon the Aztec sandstone (Jurassic) in northeast corner of sec. 21, T. 22 S., R. 58 E. The contact marks the trace of the Keystone thrust. The curve in the trace is due to local irregularities in the surface and to perspective. Clark County, Nevada. Circa 1921. Plate 14-A, with a graphic, in U.S. Geological Survey. Professional paper 162. 1931.

Gorge of Nantahala River at Cliff Ridge; looking northeast from 2 miles southwest of Nantahala station. The gorge is excavated along a narrow band of Murphy marble, and the rugged slopes on the left are upheld by Valleytown formation. Cliff Ridge, on the right, the edge of the plateau of Nantahala River, is formed by the hard topmost bed of Great Smoky conglomerate, Nantahala slate forming the steep slope. Macon County, North Carolina. 1902. Figure 1 in U.S. Geological Survey. Folio 143. 1907.

Doe River Gap, in Iron Mountain, Hampton, looking N 10 degrees W. The floor of the valley is covered by gravel and clay overlying Shady limestone. Iron Mountain is formed by the entire Cambrian quartzite series faulted up on top of the Shady limestone. The portion the of the gap shows a double crest form by the Snowbird formation and the Cochran conglomerate, a depression of Hiwassee slate lying between. The knob seen through the gap is formed by Erwin quartzite. Carter Tennessee. 1907. Figure 12 in U.S. Geological Survey. Folio 151. 1907.

Form a panorama of Big Horn Hot Spring, Thermopolis; looking east across Big Horn River and the terraces of travertine to the "Red Beds' which are inclined southward on the flank of a sharp anticline whose apex lies to the left. From this anticline 18,600,000 gallons of sulphur water issues every 24 hours, having a temperature of 135 degrees F, and carrying calcium carbonate and other mineral matter in solution. In the distance in order from left to right, are the older Chugwater red beds, the Alcova marine limestone, gypsum and shale of the upper part of the Chugwater, the marine Sundance formation, (the basal sandstone is absent here), the Morrison formation and the sandstone correlated with the lower sandstone...

Aerial view looking north along the foothills from an altitude of 7,100 feet half a mile south of Morrison, shows the common topographic expression of the post Mississippian sedimentary formations and some of the younger erosion surfaces. Colorado. Circa 1932. Figure 6 with sketch, in U.S.Geological Survey Professional paper 223. 1950.

Overturned and faulted fold at the mouth of Swan Lake Gulch (north side) T. 9 S., R. 43 E., Slug Creek quadrangle; Brazer limestone: Wells formation; Phosphoria phosphatic shales; Rex chert member of Phosphoria formation; Woodside shale. Ink marks on the photograph closely resemble the graphics on the published version. Caribou County, Idaho. 1910. Plate 46-A, with graphics, in U.S. Geological Survey. Professional paper 152. 1927.

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. The upper falls in Whiteoak Canyon is one of the many waterfalls formed where streams cross the lava flow of the Catoctin Formation. Generally falls occur where streams cross massive greenstone in the middle of the flow. Steps between falls occur where streams cross sheared breccia zones between flows. Figure 6, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1265.
