The Upper Cretaceous to Paleocene(?) Canaan Peak Formation of southwestern Utah consists of approximately 100 m of cobble conglomerate and subordinate sandstone. Coarse-grained lithofacies include massive to very crudely stratified pebble to cobble conglomerate (Gm) and trough cross-stratified conglomerate (Gt). Minor associated lithofacies include trough (St) and planar (Sp) cross-stratified sandstone and scour-fill sandstone (Ss). Gravel deposition occurred during high-discharge periods within a Scott/Donjek-type perennial braided fluvial system on longitudinal bars (Gm) and sinuous-crested transverse bars (Gt), and as a product of longitudinal bar-top and interbar channel scour filling (Gt). Sand accumulated under lower flow-velocity conditions through migration of interbar...
