The idea behind the assignment is to have students walk along the 2 mile traverse on the York Rd, NE of Helena, MT (north of the Canyon Ferry Reservoir), and construct a detailed geologic and structural map of that includes the different lithologies seen along the road, as well as reflects the complexity of the structures seen on the traverse. Depending on the level of difficulty that the instructor sets for this exercise, students could be asked to: Map lithologies and structures along the York Rd traverse Measure structural features: bedding, cleavage, fold hinge lineations, fold axial planes Sketch structural relationships seen along the road. Detailed and meaningful sketches should be emphasized. Plot structural data on a stereonet and make structural interpretations based on the data collected
