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....

Quartz overgrowths on sandstone grains after clay formation, Nanushuk Group. Quartzose grains have overgrowths at points of low pressure (pore space) adjeacent to areas that were probably under high pressure (grain contacts). Overgrowths probably develop where clay coatings are absent. A polycrystalline quartz grain (upper left) has a pod of kaolinite growing on its surface. Sample 78ACh23, Kurupa anticline; magnification, 6.3 x 10, photomicrograph. Central North Slope, Alaska. Published as Figure 47A in U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1614. 1985.

Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Eastern end of Kodels Canyon Fault on the west side of Fruita Canyon. There is no visible displacement except for considerable thinning of Wingate Sandstone. The high cliff of Wingate Sandstone on the left rests on slopes of Chinle Formation. The pinon and juniper-covered slope near the middle is Kayenta Formation resting on thinned Wingate Sandstone. Entrada Sandstone forms the low cliffs on the right. Circa 1950. Figure 32, U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 451.

Glacier National Park, Montana. Altyn Limestone in the lower slopes of Appekunny Mountain, northeast of Many Glacier Hotel. This view is at the type locality of the formation, close to the site of the former settlement of Altyn. The Lewis overthrust is at the base of the cliffs, and the smooth slopes below are underlain by shale of Cretaceous age, which yields few outcrops. July 6,1901. Figure 2, U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 296.

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. Schistose greenstone along the Appalachian Trail at the base of Little Stony Man Cliffs. Here, a zone of breccia and schistose greenstone marks the boundary between the second and third flows above the base of the Catoctin Formation. The outcrop is approximately 3 feet high. Figure 7, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1265.

Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Updragged Wingate Sandstone along Redlands Fault, looking northwest from a side road 1.5 miles southwest of the intersection of South Camp Road and South Broadway. The white "pimple" atop the cliff near the left skyline is Liberty Cap, an erosional remnant of the Wingate Sandstone, reachable via the Liberty Cap Trail. Here the Chinle Formation was largely squeezed out along the fault. 1976. Figure 38, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1508.
