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.

Album caption and index card: Cliff outcrops of Cambrian and Ordovician rocks, viewed southward from Bighorn Pass, Gallatin Range. On right, lower cliff is Pilgrim Limestone; middle platy beds are Sage Limestone member of Snowy Range Formation; upper cliff is Bighorn Dolomite. Cliffs in cirque headwall (center left) are part of Indian Creek laccolith. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Circa 1967. Published as Figure 7 in U.S. Geological Survey. Professional Paper 729-A. 1972. Note: Photos ret00205 and ret00206 form a panorama.

Isle Royale National Park, Michigan. Monument Rock, a stack associated with the shoreline of postglacial Lake Minong. Photo by T. Haas, U.S. National Park Service, circa 1971. Figure 17, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 754-A; Figure 67, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1309.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Indiana. Storms with high winds and waves create steep narrow beaches, like this one where winter storms are frequent and especially destructive. Page 28 (bottom left), U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1085.
thumbnail
Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. Mouth of the Colorado Canyon. 1904. Plate 7-B, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 352.

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.

Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia. Potomac River Gap in Blue Ridge at Harpers Ferry, viewed from Keeptryst. White Weverton quartzite cliffs across the river.
thumbnail
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.
thumbnail
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.
thumbnail
Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Fruita Canyon, looking northeast from a point on Rim Rock Drive above the head of the canyon. Dark Proterozoic rocks floor the canyon, above which are the slopes of the red Chinle Formation and the cliffs of Wingate Sandstone capped by the lower resistant beds of the Kayenta Formation. Beyond the Grand Valley are the dark Book Cliffs and the more distant, light-colored Roan Cliffs. May 28, 1970. Figure 45, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1508.

Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Geologic structural features at the north end of the Monument. Scale is approximately #1:25,000. The three stereoscopic pairs may be viewed in turn without optical aids by those accustomed to this procedure or by use of a simple double-lens stereoscope. Geologic features may be identified by comparison with the appropriate part of Plate 1 in this professional paper, orienting map with north to the left. Kodels Canyon Fault; upper bend of Lizard Canyon Monocline; Redland Fault; and upper bend of Fruita Canyon "monocline". Photo by U.S. Soil Conservation Service. Figure 34, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 451.
thumbnail
Nisqually Valley below Nisqually Glacier, as seen from station 3 in 1934 prior to the October flood (date estimated). Note the substantial stand of trees and brush on the west part of the flood plain and the river on the east side of the flood plain. Mount Rainier National Park, Washington. Photo by USGS Conservation Division, 1934. Panorama in two parts. Photo 46 and 47. (seevfm00047) Figure 36, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 631.

North Cascades National Park, Washington. Rocks of the Chilliwack composite batholith. An alaskite body (white) intrudes granodiorite on the south side of Bear Mountain. Circa 1967. Figure 15 A, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1359.
thumbnail
Sequoia National Park, California. The largest and most perfectly formed avalanche chute in the park, viewed from the High Sierra Trail east of the camp in Bearpaw Meadow. Like its smaller companion, this chute is carved in massive exfoliating granite and terminates at the brink of the glacial U-shaped canyon below. The downward narrowing of the chute is explained by the protection given to the lower part of the chute by a snow cone on the surface of the glacier which lays in the canyon. Circa 1935. Frontispiece, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 504-A.
