Geological Sights Along U.S. Hwy. 160

In northeastern Arizona, traveling eastward along U.S. Hwy 160 will get you to the town of Kayenta, the "gateway of Monument Valley".  But between U.S. Hwy 89, northeast of Flagstaff and Kayenta, there are quite a number of geological features along the way.

In this "Itinerant Geologist" post, the first two Geological sights are highlighted, as observed in June 2015, during my first Arizona journey.  The first site is of Jurassic dinosaur tracks, near Moenave and a few miles northeast are the "Elephant Feet", erosional outliers of the Jurassic Entrada Sandstone.
