Yosemite National Park, California. Cascade Cliffs and Little Yosemite Valley. In few other places in the Yosemite region is the granite more continuously massive than in the Cascade Cliffs. Only one horizontal master joint divides the rock (in the lower left.) The scales on the cliffs are merely surficial features due to exfoliation. The dark streaks indicate the paths followed by the ribbon cascades which descend from the upland in the spring, when the snow is melting, and from which the cliffs take their name. In the background is Sugar Loaf (Bunnell Point). Circa 1914. Plate 45-A, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 160. Note: The Francois E. Matthes' papers and field notebooks are housed in the Brancroft...

A "perched erratic" boulder, left by the ice of the El Portal glaciation, near the head of Little Cottonwood Creek, four miles east of Army Pass. The pedestal is composed of coarse porphyritic granite, the local country rock, and stands 10 inches high. It has been protected from the weather by boulder of durable aplite. The surrounding floor of granite, being unprotected, has been stripped granule by granule to a depth of 10 inches. Pedestals of this sort are as a rule not long-lived and the one shown here probably affords but a partial measure of the total stripping of the rock floor since the second glaciation. Evidence found elsewhere in the High Sierra shows that under similar circumstances the total stripping...
