#143. Natural Column - Washakie Bad-Lands - Wyoming.   6 x 8.5, chromolithograph. Title on plate. This picture is the Forepiece in Clarence King's Systematic Geology, published in 1878 as part of the record of his Geological Survey of the 40th Parallel, 1867-1872. The plate is based on a sketch by Gilbert Munger. He was guest artist on the survey in 1869 and 1870. In all, ten chromos by Munger are used in the book. Go to this site page for more complete information about them and a display of all ten. 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 Pl.38. Tweed 2003 Exhibition n.34. 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.
