Description

Excerpt from Upper Cretaceous Floras of the Rocky Mountain Region, Vol. 1: Stratigraphy and Paleontology of the Fox Hills and Lower Medicine Bow Formations of Southern Wyoming and Northwestern Colorado Of the 6 localities studied, 4 are situated in southern Wyoming and the remain ing 2 in northwestern Colorado, as shown in figure 1. Both areas are essentially alike in physical and climatic conditions and differ only in details with respect to the type and distribution of vegetation. These areas are included in the high, barren intermontane basins of the Rocky Mountain system. Their average elevation ranges from approximately 5000 to 7000 feet. The topography is sub-maturely dissected, and largely controlled by the differential erosion of variously dipping strata of unequal hardness. The southern Wyoming region lies in the drainage area of the North Platte and Medicine Bow rivers, which are the only permanent streams. The Yampa River drains the area in northwestern Colorado. The narrow flood plains of these streams are features of primary importance in the distribution of modern vegetation.
