Abstract

Zodletone Mountain, a 250-ft-high (76 m) eminence in Kiowa County, southern Oklahoma, constitutes the northernmost member of the Slick Hills Range and rises 1,649 ft (500 m) above sea level (SW¼SW¼ Sec.9, T.6N., R.14W. Saddle Mountain 15-minute Quadrangle, Oklahoma). The best approach to the mountain is by following Oklahoma 58 south from Carnegie for 7 mi (11 km). At this point turn west along an unpaved section road for 3 mi (4.8 km), then south for 0.5 mi (800 m) to a white two-storied farmhouse, which is the home of Mr. Don Trobe (Fig. 1). Obtain permission to visit here. (Mr. Trobe, like everyone else hereabouts, has been very supportive of geologists. However, no smoking and no litter, please.) About 0.5 mi (0.8 km) south of Mr. Trobe—s home, turn west along another section road and drive 1.7 mi (2.7 km) to a silver gate at SE¼SW¼Sec.16, T.6N., R.14W. From here a fair-weather track runs north to the northeast side of Zodletone Mountain. Follow this track to its termination, park, and walk (but beware of rattlesnakes).
