Analysis of the geometric relationships at Elk Mountain, Wyoming, indicates that the anticline is a forced fold that formed by the draping of ductile sedimentary strata over an uplifted and rotated basement block that is broken into three secondary blocks. Orientation of structures in the region seem more compatible with a stress field generated by a vertical force rather than an east-west, horizontal compressive force.
