Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 135.

This trip crosses part of the foreland fold and thrust belt extending from Alaska into Mexico. The salient we examine lies in northern Utah, southeastern Idaho and western Wyoming (Figure 1). The region is worth visiting because of the beautiful and varied scenery, well exposed rocks and well studied geology. The route is shown on Figure 2.
