      The relationships of the Swift Current Creek beds to the Cypress Hills formation have not been established. Some miles to the southwest, in the valley of Pelletier Lake, there is a thick sequence of sandstones and con- glomeratic sandstones similar to those of the Swift Current Creek beds, beneath conglomerates containing a Lower Oligocene. Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park is a unique patch in the colorful quilt of outdoor experience that is the Saskatchewan parks system. Rising metres (1, feet) above the surrounding ranch land, the Cypress Hills are the highest point of land between Labrador and the Rockies.

Manyberries is located at the eastern terminus of Highway 61 travel on the Red Coat Trail continues south on Highway a secondary connector road to meet with Highway , a secondary gravel highway to the Alberta—Saskatchewan end: PTH near Winnipeg, MB.

      Eastend is a town in southwest Saskatchewan, is situated approximately 55 kilometres (34 mi) north from the Montana border and 85 kilometres (53 mi) from the Alberta border.. The town is best known for the nearby discovery of a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton nicknamed "Scotty" in The town has used the discovery of this fossil as the main centrepiece in the construction of a museum Census division: 4. The Cypress Hills Formation reaches a maximum thickness of 80 metres ( ft) in the sub-surface in Saskatchewan, and is typically 40 metres ( ft) thick. It occurs in the elevated Cypress hills, as well as in several plateau remnants in south-eastern Saskatchewan, south of the Frenchman y: Canada.

The Upper Eocene to Miocene Cypress Hills Formation crops out on the plateau crests of the Cypress Hills at elevations up to m above the surrounding plains. 0n the west side of the Cypress Hills, elevation of the gravels is at m, whereas, on the east side of the Cypress Hills, km distant, the gravels are at by: The Cypress Hills Formation and Its Reworked Deposits in Southwestern Saskatchewan; in, Alberta Society of Petroleum Geologists 15 th Annual Field Conference.

Each layer, called a formation, formed at a File Size: KB. In the Cypress Hills area and southern Saskatchewan, lignite deposits developed from the marshes of these Tertiary rivers. The sea waters have retreated from the areas known as Saskatchewan.

The Ravenscrag formation, Cypress Hills, and Wood Mountain Formations were notable gravel deposits from the Tertiary period. The Mystery Rocks of Saskatchewan near the Cypress Hills – a strange place. Very little is known about these rocks.

Located on private land, permission is required to access them. This story starts out long ago. The Native Americans who lived in the area back in the day would not set up camp anywhere near them. Welcome to the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. The Park spans the South East corner of Alberta and the South Wwest corner of Saskatchewan.

You will also find the National Heritage Site of Fort Walsh on the South side of the park. It is a great place to relax, discover the outdoors or have an adventure. Cypress Hills Provincial Park in Southeast Alberta and Southwest Saskatchewan- an oasis on the prairie.

Landscape untouched by the ice-age and formed by the borders of the glacial movement. Introduction The west block of the Cypress Hills is a unique Canadian landscape.

This broad dissected plateau extends about 29 km westward and 17 km eastward from the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary between latitudes 49 o 30' and 49 o 40' N. The plateau rises westward from an elevation of m in Saskatchewan to m in Alberta, the highest point in southern Canada between the Appalachian.

1. Cypress Hills Grand Tour. When it comes to scenic drives in Saskatchewan, it’s hard to top the Cypress Hills. Rising from the surrounding plains, the upper reaches of the Cypress Hills remained untouched by glaciers during the last Ice Age, leaving some of the highest land in Canada between the Rockies and Labrador.

Cypress Hills and Flaxville surfaces. Cypress Hills Quartzite Gravel. The Cypress Hills of southeast Alberta and southwest Saskatchewan is the top pla-nation surface of the High Plains.

It extends approximately 80 miles ( km) east-west, and is wedge shaped, being 3 miles (5 km) wide at the western end and about 18 miles. There is also reworked quartzite gravel that is mostly south of the Cypress Hills, called the ‘redeposited Cypress Hills Formation’.

Nearly all the quartzite gravel exhibits a uniform patina of iron oxide (see figure 3). The gravel is massive,* poorly-sorted,* imbricated* and clast-supported* with a few sand interbeds. Paleocurrent indicators (figure 5) show an average flow direction from the west. The deposits also are divided into four stratigraphic units based on age and elevation.

These units are the Cypress Hills Formation and equivalents (about Early Oligocene depositional age), the Hand Hills Formation and equivalents (about Pliocene), the Upland Gravels (Pleistocene), and the Saskatchewan Sands and Gravels (Late Wisconsinan).

Seven tephra beds in Davis Creek silt (late Miocene) are reported from two sites in the Cypress Hills of southwestern Saskatchewan. The uppermost bed at the Davis Creek site has been dated at ± Ma, using the isothermal plateau fission-track technique on its hydrated glass by: 4.

Remnant fluvial sand and gravel deposits comprise the uppermost beds of the Tertiary stratigraphic sequence in the Swan Hills, Hand Hills, Wintering Hills, an area northeast of Handhills, Lake, the Del Bonita area, Cypress Hills, Swift current Upland, and the Wood Mountain and Willow Bunch Lake areas, all in the Canadian Great by: 1.

The Cypress Hills and Flaxville Plateaus are the two highest planation surfaces described in Alden’s classification. However, the Wood Mountain Plateau of southern Saskatchewan (Figure ) is a quartzite-capped planation surface that is intermediate in altitude and lies between the Cypress Hills and Flaxville Plateaus.

The Cypress Hills are an erosional plateau formed by millions of years of sedimentary deposition followed by millions of years of erosion. Today, the Cypress Hills expose a unique cross-section of geological history found nowhere else in western Canada.

The Cypress Hills resemble a giant layer cake composed of many layers of sedimentary rock.Calcium carbonate precipitates out of water draining from the cliff's edge.

This, together with tremendous pressure, cements exposed gravel and stones together. This forms a unique cap protecting the hills from erosion.

Dark Sky Preserve; Cypress Hills Winery.Winter is especially exhilarating in the Cypress Hills as the snow nestles in the lush lodgepole pine and white spruce forests. The higher elevation of the hills brings more precipitation and in winter this means fun cross-county skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing and wildlife viewing experiences.
