Field camp, 2019
It’s our last day in Dillon –we’ve been here for about the last ten days, mostly focused on mapping an area called Block Mountain. It’s got to be one of the most amazing places geologically I’ve seen! The basic structure of part of the area is a plunging anticline and syncline –formed as fault propagation folds above the large Hogback thrust that’s exposed to the south.
Here’s an aerial view!
But there’s so much more! And so many cool things to see! Below is just a sampling of the many interesting rocks and structures that I added to the site. You should be able to find all of them searching for the date: 1907 –as in July of 2019–or if you type in “SW Montana”.
