#143. Natural Column - Washakie Bad-Lands - Wyoming.   6 x 8.5, chromolithograph. Title on plate. This picture is the frontispiece in Clarence King's Systematic Geology, published in 1878. It is based on an oil sketch by Gilbert Munger. He was guest artist with King's 40th Parallel Geological Survey in 1869 and 1870. The Washakie Badlands are part of the Washakie Basin in Wyoming, which is located just north of the Colorado border in southeast Sweetwater County. It is about 30 miles south of where the railroad crossed the Green River at Green River City and, thus, is fairly accessible from the railroad. QFD 38. A smaller version of this image appears as a chromolithograph titled "Naturliche Saule in Wyoming (Nordamerika)" in Allgemeine Geologie by Melchior Neumayr (1845 - 1890), published as volumes 1 and 2 of Erdgeschichte in Leipzig, Germany, in 1886. Image is a direct scan of the Systematic Geology plate.
