Abstract

The Bally Mountain Range is located in eastern Kiowa County in southwestern Oklahoma (T.6N., R.14W.). The closest important road is Oklahoma 58 (Fig. 1). This road can be accessed from the H. E. Bailey Turnpike by taking the Medicine Park exit a few miles north of Lawton. Alternatively, the route can be joined from the north by taking the Hydro exit from 1-40. The easiest way of reaching the site is to proceed north on Oklahoma 58 for 3 mi (4.8 km) from its junction with Oklahoma 19, then turn west along a partly paved county road for 3 mi (4.8 km). Just before reaching the most prominent hill in view (which is Bally Mountain), turn right on an unpaved road and proceed north for a few hundred yards to the only inhabited house (on the west side of the road). This is the home of Mr. W. Hodges, the principal landowner in the area, where permission to visit the site should be sought. In common with several other landowners in the area, Mr. Hodges freely allows large parties of students access to his land on condition that they do not smoke or leave litter and that they close all gates, etc. His house is very conveniently situated; immediately to the west is the bulk of Bally Mountain, which is composed of Carlton Rhyolite. This hill is 1,900 ft (580 m) high and rises 350 ft (107 m) above the surrounding plains. To the north and east rises the remainder
