Location: Larimer County
Size: 292 acres
This natural area includes an exposure of the Blue Mountain Fault, providing a clear example of drape or drag faulting and of stratigraphic pinch-out of two Permian formations (Satanka and Ingleside). The zone of mingling between the alluvial fan of the ancestral Rockies and the sand beaches of the ancestral sea is clearly visible. Physaria bellii (Bell's twinpod; G2G3; S2S3) is found in two places on the property.
