IGERT Trip to Wyoming: Day 4

Day 4- Saturday-Geology of Big Horn Mountains, Geology of Wold Ranch

Saturday marked the trek of our group into the Big Horn Mountains, but first we checked out the canyon on Wold Ranch property.  The geology of the Big Horn Mountains, which is nicely labeled as you drive, shows the different eras of rocks formation. There is a huge jump rock age where you can see the basement and the tensleep sandstone layers at one site, which perked up all the geologist/ geophysicists.
