... and are characterized by pronounced "knob-and-kettle" topography and tills rich in crystalline constituents. More recent deposits at the base of Medicine Bow Peak, W. of the source of Libby Creek, have been considered by some workers as recent moraines, but are more likely protalus ramparts overlying latest Pinedale...

... ( Houston et al. 1992 ). The Bridger Peak quartzite is correlated with the Conical Peak quartzite of the Medicine Bow Mountains (Fig.  3 ), which is interpreted to be deposited in a fluvial to shallow-marine environment ( Houston et al. 1992 ). The Phantom Lake suite, Vulcan Mountain metavolcanics...

... in the Medicine Bow Mountains of southeastern Wyoming. These shear zones are generally interpreted as a mid-crustal thrust system rotated to its present-day subvertical orientation during late-stage, orogen-scale folding. However, the map geometry, presence of large domains of S tectonites, and vertical mineral...
