Happy Geolidays to all!

The Laramie Basin in the southern Rocky Mountains (USA) is a classic Laramide syncline situated between two broad-backed Laramide uplifts:  the Laramie Range to the east and the Medicine Bow Mountains to the west.  Above the broad summit of the Medicine Bow Mountains stand the high quartzite ridges of the Snowy Range, and several en echelon anticlines extend into the basin (see illustration below).
