My Laramide Pumpkin

This year in honor of Accretionary Wedge #40 I carved my Halloween pumpkin into a mountain range.
In keeping with the Laramide-style deformation that surrounds us, it is a breached anticline with the Precambrian core exposed.  Peaked flatirons ring the strike valley that surrounds the highest parts of the range.  Clastic debris litters the basal slopes.
