No vertical exaggeration has been applied.
Split Mountain is near the eastern most extent of the Uinta Mountains. It gets it’s name because the mountain has been “split in two” by erosion forces from the Green River. The mountain is a huge anticline, which amazingly, the Green River has cut Split Mountain Canyon right through the center and highest part of the anticline. The setting is very spectacular because the bent rock layers and geology has been exposed.
