Day #38 Outcrop: Diorite, Laccolith, Henry Mountains

I’ve never had enough time to truly explore the Henry Mountains of Utah, but I have had the opportunity to pass through their neighborhood long enough to get a glimpse of the distal edge of a few of the laccoliths made famous by G.K. Gilbert’s geologic expedition of 1875. Here’s hoping I can get back there sometime soon and do some proper exploring.
