Small scale columnar structures (individual columns are 6-8 in. in diameter and up to 3-4 ft. in length) occur in the Ute formation (Cambrian) about 5 mi. N. of Brigham City in the Wasatch Range of northern Utah. The best formed columns occur in 2 stratigraphic intervals of interbedded, thin-bedded gray limestone and brown-weathering silty limestone. The columns consist almost entirely of gray limestone although surrounded by interbedded limestone and silty limestone. Photographs illustrate the relation of columns to surrounding beds.
