Death Valley National Park, California. Furnace Creek Formation at the north end of the Black Mountains. View is southwest and west of Zabriskie Point, an overlook by Highway 190 about 3 miles up Furnace Creek Wash from Furnace Creek Inn. The base of the Furnace Creek Formation is at the topographic break between the badlands and the rougher, higher ground in the distance on the left. Light-colored playa beds about 2,500 feet thick extend to the base of a conglomerate which forms the dark cliff at the right. The beds are dipping to the right (north) into the Texas Spring Syncline. The center of the photograph looks west across Death Valley to the Panamint Range at Aguereberry Point; Tucki Mountain on the right....

Quaternary gravel resting on eroded surface of the lower part of the Tullock member of the Lance formation on Box Elder Creek, Sec. 13, T. 5 N., R. 35 E., this gravel covers the main divides and higher hills in the northern part of the Tullock Creek field. Where it reaches a maximum thickness of 90 feet, though unconsolidated in some localities, in others it is a conglomerate, as shown in this view. Treasure County, Montana. 1912. Published as Plate 7-A in U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 749. 1923.

Glacier National Park, Montana. Intense soft-sediment deformation produced during pillow emplacement at Granite Park. The pillow in the lower right corner is entirely buried. The basal contact of the Purcell lava with the Snowslip Formation is, thus, locally very irregular. 1982. Figure 9-B, U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 85-543.

Death Valley National Park, California. Fractured cobble conglomerate in the Titus Canyon(?) Formation of Stock and Bode (1935). The fractures extend through the cobbles, and some cross from one cobble to another. They are oriented at right angles to the bedding, which approximately parallels the elongation of the cobbles. Displacements along the fractures are mostly less than a quarter of an inch. Circa 1960. Figure 41, U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 494-A.
