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....

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.

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. Columnar jointing in greenstone. Large column along the Appalachian Trail about 200 feet south of Little Stony Man parking area. The column is cut by cleavage which dips east, away from the observer. The segment of the coluiai above each cleavage plane is offset westward from the segment beneath as a result of movement during formation of the cleavage. Column is approximately 2 feet in diameter. Figure 9 (right), U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1265.
