Several types of meter-scale structures accommodated strain during folding of the Tensleep sandstones at Flat Top Anticline, a compound fold overlying an east-northeast to west-southwest striking Laramide thrust fault in southeastern Wyoming. The suite of structures includes (1) syn-depositional hydraulic injection fractures that were reactivated in shear and extension during folding, (2) early-formed hinge-oblique extension fractures, (3) later-formed hinge-parallel extension fractures concentrated on the crest and forelimb, (4) scattered small shear planes oriented both parallel and oblique to the large-scale eolian cross-bed foresets, (5) larger-scale bedding-parallel shear between sedimentary units on the steeper forelimbs, (6) faults, and (7) rare...
