Title: Stratigraphy of Northwestern Wind River Basin and Range, Dubois Area, Fremont County, Wyoming

Author(s): C. C. Reeves, Jr. (2)


The northwestern part of the Wind River Basin and Range is in the northwest tip of Fremont County, Wyoming, and within sight of the Absaroka Mountain escarpment.

From the Precambrian core of the range to the basin area surrounding Dubois, a nearly complete stratigraphic column is present; the best exposures can be found in the many canyons cut in the dip slopes. Foot-by-foot measured sections are presented.

The Precambrian to Upper Jurassic stratigraphy was studied along Warm Spring Creek, the Upper Jurassic to Cretaceous in the Little Horse Creek area, and the lower Cenozoic around Brooks Lake. Miscellaneous studies were made at Torry Creek and throughout the area.
