Beatty Junction fans & faults

Beatty Junction fans & faults

Detailed Description

Beatty Junction is a crossroads where highways 190, 267, and 374 come together near the historic location of the orginal Stovepipe Wells ( the location of springs on Mesquite Flat are to the right of this image). This view reveals how uplift along the mountain front is creating an incised pediment while alluvial fan systems continue to develop both above and below the fault-bounded uplifted area that runs diagonally across this image. North Highway (267) toward Scotty's Castle exits at the bottom center of the image. Scale (1:48,000); north is to the left.
