Death Valley National Park, California. Tubular orifices in the fine sediments at Salt Springs near the north side of Borax Camp allow discharge of water to the valley floor. Light areas are accumulations of salts from previous discharges. Circa 1960. Figure 10, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 494-B.

Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Devils Kitchen, looking north from a ridge in the middle of No Thoroughfare Canyon. An erosional remnant of the Wingate Sandstone capped by the lowermost sandstone of the Kayenta Formation. Photograph by T.F. Giles, December 15, 1978. U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1508. Figure 57.

North Cascades National Park, Washington. Glaciers at the head of Luna Creek in Picket Range. This complex of ice patches illustrates the difficulty of counting and classifying individual glaciers. A glacier fed by ice avalanches ends in Luna Lake on the left. Avalanches from the large irregular hanging glacier that clings to the cliffs feed the debris-covered ice upslope from another lake (foreground, right center). A small ice patch fed by snow avalanches lies at the base of the cliffs in right center. September 27, 1960. Plate 3-D, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 705-A. 1971.

Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Alaska. The iceberg projects 75 feet above the water. The nearer face, black with rock debris, was probably part of the base of the parent glacier. Harriman Expedition, 1899.

Sequoia National Park, California. Glacier polish, striae, and grooves above the head of Kern Canyon. The rock is aplite, which weathers more slowly than the coarser granite and, therefore, holds its glacial markings longer. Since being glaciated, the aplite has been somewhat disrupted into angular blocks by repeated frost action. Circa 1935. Figure 23, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 504-A.

Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Ladder Creek Monocline and Redlands Fault. View is northwest from a point near Little Park Road east of the monument. No Thoroughfare Canyon in the foreground, which is bordered on the left by northeastward-dipping beds of Wingate Sandstone at the northwest end of Ladder Creek Monocline. Old Serpents Trail, the lower part of which is barely visible, ascends this dipping block of rock. The dark Proterozoic rocks form the flat-topped bluff on the right and are exposed by the Redlands Fault which lies just above the sharply upturned remnants of the Wingate Sandstone. 1976. Figure 29, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1508.

North Cascades National Park, Washington. Swirled banded gneiss made up of layers of dark and light-colored biotite quartz gneiss. The white rock, under the pick handle and in the upper left corner, is light-colored diorite. View is from the south ridge of Davis Peak. Circa 1967. Figure 5-A, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1359.

View toward the Carnegie Institution Marine Biological Laboratory aquarium and wharf, showing the amount of retreat of the beach line during the October 1910 storm. The line formerly extended seaward on the piles that support the aquarium. Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida. June 1911.

Album caption and index card: The mouth of the Little Colorado River as seen from Cape Solitude, 1,167 meters above the river level. This upstream view of the Colorado River was taken after the completion of Glen Canyon Dam and during a period of low flow when Lake Powell was filling. From this vantage point, the interrupted line of dense vegetation marking the flood level is visible, especially on the left bank. A few shrubs (circle) have become established below the upper fringe of plants. The Little Colorado River enters from the right, and its waters appear turbid in this July view. A dense stand of riparian vegetation lines its left bank. (Altitude is 826 meters). Grand Canyon National Park. Coconino County,...
