Meadview, AZ

For my field mapping class this spring, we spent 2 weeks near Meadview, just south of where the Colorado River enters Lake Mead. We were mapping sections of Wheeler Ridge, a block that got faulted and rotated off the edge of the Colorado Plateau.

The layers of sedimentary rock had all been tilted at least 45 degrees from horizontal, and formed large ridges and steep waterfalls throughout our mapping area
