Abstract

The Chuska Mountains, in northwestern New Mexico and adjacent Arizona, consist of flat-lying Miocene (?) sedimentary rocks locally overlain by pyroclastic and flow rocks of the Pliocene Navajo-Hopi volcanic province. The volcanic rocks were extruded into deep valleys cut into the top and flanks of the mountains.
