Abstract

The Cretaceous Bear River and Aspen section in Willow Creek, 6 miles southeast of the junction of the Hoback and Snake rivers, Teton County, Wyoming, is described in detail, including the position and nature of its faunas. The Bear River is 539 feet thick, and the Aspen 1307 feet thick. On lithologic and paleontologic grounds the Bear River-Aspen contact is placed lower than in earlier reports. The Aspen section contains 63 feet of porcellanite, which suggests prolonged volcanic activity in the region.
