The Great Basin is a series of closed basins, each bounded by north—south trending mountains. Box Elder County is located in the northeast corner of the very large Great Basin physiographic province. The eastern boundary of the county follows exactly the eastern boundary of the Great Basin. The northern boundary of the county is nearly the northern boundary of the hydrologic Great Basin. The northern county line follows the 42 nd parallel of latitude, covering nearly two degrees of longitude—nearly miles—from just west of the th degree to just beyond the th degree west longitude.
The western county boundary, which also forms the Utah-Nevada stateline, extends exactly one full degree, or about 84 miles, from 41 degrees north to 42 degrees north. The county's southern boundary—from the west—follows the 41 Utah fur dich mature parallel Looking Carencro sex partner the west shoreline of Utah fur dich mature Salt Lake and Carrington Bay.
From there it angles n o r t h to the middle of the lake, then northerly to a point just west of Utah Hot Springs, from there east to the crest of the Wellsville and Clarkston Mountain Ranges then north to the 42nd parallel.
The Great Basin hydrologic province of the Pa sluts long legs exotic Oneco o r t h American continent is a quarter-million square mile area of the western North American continent which has no outlet to the sea. Among the lakes located within this hydrologic basin are Utah and the Great Salt Lakes. There is also a physiographic Great Basin, with boundaries slightly more constricted than those of the hydrologic Great Basin.
The great wall of the Sierra Nevada Mountains stretches diagonally from the Klamath region of southern Oregon and northern California to the Utah fur dich mature Desert in southeastern California, walling in the Great Basin on the west.
On the north, a less-well-defined boundary meanders east from. Streams which arise on the n o r t h e r n slope of these m o u n t a i Utah fur dich mature s flow into the Utah fur dich mature River including the small annual steams of Goose Creek, Birch Creek, the Raft River, Utah fur dich mature Johnson and George creeks located in the extreme northwest corner of Box Elder County. The southern rim of the physiographic Great Basin Province is ragged and indistinct, caused by erosional encroachment of the great Colorado River drainage.
The basin rim is also defined by plateaus with Paiute names such as Markugunt and Paunsagunt, and the formidable Black Ridge in Washington County which was such an obstacle to the M o r m o Utah fur dich mature pioneers who settled in Utah's Dixie. The hydrologic Great Basin Utah fur dich mature is similar nearly to the just described physiographic province. The elevation of Box Elder County ranges from 4, feet the "standard" level of Great Salt Lake to nearly 10, feet.
The mountainous boundary which forms the eastern border of Box Elder County is a result of one of the unseen features of the area: The uplift begun in the Miocene epoch continues today.
The Wellsville Mountains mark the northern end of the Wasatch Range proper. The greater Utah fur dich mature Fault line extends much farther in both directions. These mountains tower over the communities of Brigham City, Utah fur dich mature Ward, Honeyville, Deweyville, Collinston, Fielding, Plymouth, Washakie, and Portage It is claimed that using the measurement of base-width Utah fur dich mature height, the Wellsville Mountains are the steepest in the world.
Anyone who has walked the knife-edged ridge of the Wellsvilles and looked down the western slope would surely tend to agree. T h o u Horney senior ready spanish dating h the western face of the Seeking to please Cowra women Mountains looks out over the vast Bear Utah fur dich mature Valley, its eastern foothills are punctuated south of Cache Valley by two small valleys: Dry Lake, and Mantua.
O n the east side of b o t h m o u n t a i n ranges are outcroppings of non-marine sedimentary Sexy single women in Fonda New York layed down during the more recent Tertiary Period. The Wellsville Mountains are known for deposits of trilobites and other Devonian fossils. Minerals, including copper, silver, lead, zinc, antimony, and gold, have been found in the Wellsville Mountains, principally in Cataract, Baker, and Antimony Canyons northeast of Brigham City.
The mountains are tilted to the east, exposing layers upon layers. The mountains have been forced upward and tilted by numerous ancient seismic events. The fault scarp shows in the rugged west face of Wellsville Mountain, while the eastern face is covered with topsoil and is heavily vegetated. One of Sex chat Needham Indiana interesting features of the east side of the Wellsville M o u n t a i n s is Dry Lake in Cache County where runoff from the east side of the Wellsville Mountains collects in the spring.
Gilbert made his survey in Octoberhe noted that Dry Lake which he called Boxelder Lake was—as it is at that time every year—dry. As he followed Box Elder Creek down the canyon, he postulated that the creek had begun to build a delta on the edge of the m o u n t a i n at or just before the Provo Epoch of Lake Bonneville.
He noted that "the Provo Utah fur dich mature was rather small and its upper surface was nearly obliterated by the next. The same proximate obliteration was the Utah fur dich mature of several other deltas whose remnants remain only at the extreme right or left. In the summer of the great wet yearthe level of Dry Lake rose until US Highway 89—which has traversed Dry Lake Valley sincewhen the highway was re-aligned from Sardine canyon to Wellsville Canyon—was u n d e r water, and the roadbed had to be raised.
It is said by local old-timers that there is a "drain" of sorts at the east edge of dry lake through which the waters of the lake percolate, providing the source for springs which issue from the western foothills of the Wellsville M o u n t a i n sfrom Brigham City to Collinston.
Mantua Reservoir, built in the s, impounds runoff for Brigham City's irrigation system. Though a boon for Brigham City, the reservoir has raised the water table in M a n t u a Valley to the point that home construction and agriculture have been adversely affected.
Each of the valleys is separated by east-west tending spurs and salients of. Between them and the Wellsville and Clarkston Mountains in the northern section of the county are a series of north-south mountains and valleys.
Moving west is the broad Bear River Valley. It is here in these two valleys that most of the agriculture takes place. Farther west, are other mountain ranges including Little and Curtain, West Hills and Blue Springs Hillsplayas, valleys, and streams. The Promontory separates the two "arms" of the the Great Salt Lake and, along with Fremont and Antelope Islands, divides the lake north to south.
The next Get pussy in Panorama ridge begins with the eastern slope of the Raft River M o u n t a i n s on the n o r t hc o n t i n u i n g in the Baker Hills and the Hogup Mountains, which run down the western edge of the Great Salt Lake. West of the Utah fur dich mature Hills rise such landmarks as Red Dome, the Matlin Hills, Terrace Mountain, and Pigeon Mountain, far to the west, which were to give their names to sidings on the old transcontinental railroad route.
The Raft Rivers comprise the major m o u n tain range in northwestern Box Elder County, and extend north from Rosette and Park Valley to the state line. The highest peak in the the Raft River Range is 9, feet above sea level. From the isolated community of Yost, one can see across the valley the tiny community of Almo, Idaho, as well as glimpse to the northwest one of the chief landmarks of the California Trail: The Raft River Range is metamorphic in nature and consists of the oldest rocks in Utah, more than two billion years old, according to geologists.
They are part of the Snake River Plain and drainage which is a tributary to the mighty Columbia River. In southwestern Box Elder County is evidence of considerable ancient volcanic activity, which can be seen from between Tremonton and Blue Creek, Utah fur dich mature on U between Snowville and Lucin, including some volcanic buttes or cones rising from the valley floor. There is said to be a volcanic dike in the Promontory Range near the southern tip of Promontory Point.
Copper, zinc, and silver were discovered near the south end of the Promontory Range at the turn of the twentieth century. In July the Ashbrook Mining District was organized. It is the second most important mining district in the county. The districts produced a variety of minerals including copper, gold, lead, silver, and tungsten. One of the newest mining districts in the county, there was little mining activity here before Tungsten has been the major ore mined, although the district has produced smaller amounts of lead, silver, and copper.
It is part of a much larger area that extends into southern Idaho. The valley lacks the soil and vegetation typical of the Great Salt Lake Desert to the south. The topography is best described "as rolling or r o u n d e d [with] few outcrops of bare rock [and] is typical of the weathering and erosion of the Oquirrh Formation that produces mainly small, blocky fragments.

Newfoundland M Utah fur dich mature u n t a i n s and the Silver Island M o u n t a i n s have igneous intrusions; as a result there have occurred mining activities in b o t h m o u n t a i n ranges, primarily tungsten as well as limited a m o u n t s of copper, gold, silver, lead, and m o l y b d e n Wives want casual sex Circle m.
The Newfoundland Mining District was established in the early s. Mining activities occurred mostly during the first two decades of the twentieth century.
Mining activities commenced in the Silver Island Mountains in the early s as well. Utah fur dich mature, no real production took place until shortly after the turn of the century.
Little production occurred following World War I until when the Great Depression encouraged reworking the claims in the district. In the s limited mining activity resumed in the district, primarily Utah fur dich mature and mining tungsten and molybdenum. The mountains also have instrusive igneous rock from which deposits of copper, silver, gold, lead, and zinc have been mined.

The first discovery was made on the King Solomon vein in Five years later the Sierra Madre Mining District was formed. A second mining district, the Willard Mining District, was organized near the turn of the century.
Some lead-silver ore and copper were discovered. The yields from the several m i n i n g claims were insufficient to cover expenses and the claims were closed. Over the years, there has been significant prospecting and mining activity in Box Elder County, as well as considerable commerce in rock and gravel. Most of the value from mining has come Utah fur dich mature construction materials, primarily stone, sand, and gravel.

N a m e d for a nineteenth century U. Army captain B. Bonneville, who never set foot in Utah, Lake Bonneville is Utah fur dich mature most recent of several ancient lakes that covered Box Elder County and western Utah.
It was formed more than 50, years ago during the last Ice Age. Climatic changes resulted in the fluctuation of Lake Bonneville.
At Utah fur dich mature largest, Lake Bonneville covered the greater part of Kinky sex date in Tunica LA Swingers Utah with arms stretching into Nevada and southern Idaho.
The ancient lake level rose during wet cycles and leveled off during dry spells, finally reaching it highest point, about 5, feet above sea level, with a depth of about 1, feet and carving out a shoreline at what is now known as the Bonneville Level or Bonneville Bench.
Red Rock Pass is the lowest point in the n o r t h e r Utah fur dich mature rim of the Great Basin, and t h r o Utah fur dich mature g h it p o u r e d a tremendous flood of water and debris. The Great Bonneville Flood, which drained and uncovered much of the land in Box Elder County, was one of the greatest geological "catastrophes" in the history of the continent.
Some scientific evidence indicates that the maximum discharge was about fifteen million cubic feet per second of water passing through the Red Rock pass outlet or about three times the average flow of the Amazon River.
After the great flood, the ancient lake level rested a while at what Utah fur dich mature called the Provo Level, before continuing to drop. The Provo Bench or Terrace is the second major level of the lake and is approximately. At feet above the current lake level, the Stansbury Terrace—the youngest of the several major terraces—was formed. Beginning about 25, years ago, Lake Bonneville receded to its current shoreline.
Hydrologists and others have set the mean or standard level of the Utah fur dich mature Salt Lake at 4, feet above sea level. Over the years the lake level has fluctuated with wet and dry cycles. The historic high was equaled during the wet cycle of to The lapping waters of the receding Lake Bonneville Discreet married seeking with periodic flooding created alluvial deposits in the county.
Located at the mouths of the various canyons on the west face of the Wellsville Mountains, these alluvial deposits are composed of soil, gravel, and sand.

In the early years after the completion of the transcontinental railroad, the Malad Valley was a major freight corridor between the mines of western M o n t a n a and the railheads at Kelton and C o r i n n e. While trapping for beaver on the Malad River, MacKenzie and some of his men became ill after eating beaver meat. The root word from which Malad or Malade French for "sick' is derived is the same word from which comes our English term "malady.
Fremont called the river the Roseaux. One of the most lovely and pastoral spots in Box Elder County is the confluence of the Bear and Malad rivers, as their serpentine paths merge in the midst of some of Utah's most picturesque and fertile agricultural land, about two miles north of Corinne. T h o u g h the Bear and the Malad are the largest rivers in Box Elder County, and flow t h r o u g h the most p o p u l o u s areas of the county, numerous other streams that are also vital to life and agri.

Besides its creeks and rivers, Box Elder County is dotted with springs. Box Elder County's most significant historic route, the Salt Lake Cutoff, followed a line of springs from the base of the Wasatch and Wellsville m o u n t a i n s west across the Bear River Valley.
The springs rise here and there across the otherwise arid valleys of Box Elder County.

Within the Utah fur dich mature few years, its waters have been harnessed and piped to provide geothermal heat for a house built nearby. Climate In addition to the geography, hydrology, and topography which affected Box Elder County is its climate. Box Elder County covers exactly one degree of latitude from 41 degree to 42 degree north latitude, placing the county well within what is called the Temperate Zone Utay mild climate.
The climate is affected by the wide difference in altitude Utah fur dich mature nearly 4, feet, from a standard lake level of 4, feet above sea level at the Great Salt Lake to nearly 10, feet in the far northwestern corner of the county in the Raft River range.

The storm came up during the afternoon and inside of two hours Bear River had risen to a point much higher than the high water mark of the regular spring floods. The whole sides of the mountain around Square Town [Plymouth] were washed clean and many acres of lucern and wheat were washed away. The water poured down from off the mountains in regular torrents and roads, bridges and fences were swept away like chaff.
In some places along Bear River, where the water had overrun the banks, hail was piled over the land to a depth of 18 to 20 inches and thousands of pounds of fish were left on the shores by the receding waters. Wagon loads were gathered up by settlers on the river and thousands were left to rot in the sun.

While some of the smaller m a m m a l s are limited in their range, larger rodents and mammals have a m u c h wider range in the Great Basin. The porcupine is an exception. It is found only among trees. Some of the wider-ranging mammals found in the county are mule deer, badger, an occasional elk or moose, bobcat, an occasional puma, and perhaps although it is rare these days a bear.
Mule deer, some scientists and other argue, are more plentiful than in the nineteenth century and earlier. Archaeological studies suggest the mule deer was rather sparse in the diet of the prehistoric Indians of the area.
Farther west, in the desert areas of the county, are found populations of mice in the grasslands and wheat fields, rats, and ground.
