Wind River and Riverton

  • M. Dane Picard


It was the last third of a long field season. If anyone had said to me it would be the last summer I would run the surveying instruments, I wouldn’t have believed them. I assumed geologists would use plane tables forever. But the summer of ‘50 was the last time I solved a three-point problem. I put away the plane table and alidade for good. An era in petroleum exploration had ended in the Rocky Mountains.
