An interesting phase of mountain structure has recently come to notice among the block ranges of the basin region of the southwest. As is well known, most of the basin ranges are long, narrow tilted blocks, arranged subparallel to one another, with intervals of twenty to forty miles of flat country between. These mountain blocks are fifty to one hundred miles in length and are tilted to heights of 3,000 to 5,000 feet.
