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.

Album caption and index card: Extinct Soda Spring Basin. About 3 miles up the valley of a small tributary of the Bear River we come to a most remarkable formation, consisting of the basins of old springs long extinct. They are called the "petrifying springs" by the settlers, from the abundance of calcareous tufa which exists in the basins. Some of them are 6 feet in depth, and contain large masses of plants coated with a calcareous material, which retains perfectly the form of the leaf and stem. Caribou County, Idaho. 1871. Notes on album caption: None. Descriptive Catalog of the Photographs of the United States Geological Survey of the Territories, W. H. Jackson, Photographer, Second Edition, Illustrated, 1871...

Album caption: Flow failure down a hillside slope on the Nunez Ranch 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Half Moon Bay. Note the man standing at the base of the deposited debris and a second man standing on the lower edge of the cavity at the top of the slide. Additional incipient flow failures with much smaller movements also occurred on the convex hill to the left of the principal landslide. Photograph previously published in Lawson and others (1908, pl. 133B) with caption "Earth-flow 4 miles east of Half Moon Bay." San Mateo County, California. 1906. Published as figure 22 in U. S. Geological Survey Professional paper 993. 1978. (Not available from U.S.G.S. Photo Library. Photograph by R. A. Anderson, J.C. Branner...
