The story of Shenandoah’s mountains is the story of two mountain ranges, spanning over one billion years of earth’s history. Between and billion years ago, ancient collisions of tectonic plates raised a great mountain range, named Grenville by geologists.

22 [W C Sherwood;]. The mountain bisects the Shenandoah Valley just east of Strasburg in Shenandoah County in the north, to its highest peak east of Harrisonburg in Rockingham County in the south.

The mountain is divided into northern and southern sections, divided by the New Market Gap. The northern section consists of 3 roughly parallel ridges, forming 2 on: Virginia, U.S. Shenandoah National Park / ˈ ʃ ɛ n ə n ˌ d oʊ ə / (often / ˈ ʃ æ n ə n ˌ d oʊ ə /) is a national park that encompasses part of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the U.S.

Callan attends the Geological Society of Washington's fall field trip, examining the relationship between grape-growing and the underlying geology of two provinces in northern Virginia: the Blue Ridge and the Valley & Ridge.

With GSW compatriots, Callan visited Hume Vineyards in the central Blue Ridge province and North Mountain Vineyard and Winery in the Shenandoah Valley. This is. Geologic traverse across the North Mountain thrust sheet, southern Page Valley and northern Shenandoah Valley, Virginia Michael J.

The Valley & Ridge province consists of elongate parallel ridges and valleys that are underlain by folded Paleozoic sedimentary rocks. The characteristic topography of this region results from differential erosion of linear belts of rocks that are repeated by folding and faulting.

Rivers draining the Valley & Ridge province typically display a trellis drainage pattern. The Hayfield minute quadrangle is located within the Valley and Ridge physiographic province of northern Virginia. The quadrangle includes the topographical lowland area of the northern Great Valley to the southeast, the narrow ridge of Little North Mountain along the western edge of the Great Valley, and the broad region of elongated.

The first fault, noted on the stratigraphic map, is the Little North Mountain Fault. The Little North Mountain Fault zone extends 27 miles in a northeast and southwest direction across the County.

The Fault crosses US Route 33 about miles west of Hinton. The second fault structure area is between Little North Mountain and the Shenandoah.

These ridges bear such names as Little North Mountain, Narrow Back Mountain, Feedstone Mountain and Church Mountain.

Like the Massanutten, they are usually capped with resistant sandstone rock layers. The Allegheny Mountain Range / æ l ɪ ˈ ɡ eɪ n i /, informally the Alleghenies and also spelled Alleghany and Allegany, is part of the vast Appalachian Mountain Range of the Eastern United States and Canada and posed a significant barrier to land travel in less technologically advanced eras.

The barrier range has a northeast–southwest orientation and runs for about miles ( km. Current geological activity in Shenandoah National Park is a result of natural and man-made forces acting on the surrounding mountains and valleys.

Freezing and thawing can result in rockfalls and spalling from cliff faces. Severe thunderstorms and rain events can cause flooding and associated erosion. between Massanutten Mountain and Little North Mountain. Rader and Perry (a, p. 41) have proposed, on the basis of a reinvestigation of outcrops and new drill-hole data at Brocks Gap, that this part of Little North Mountain is "a transported slice of Upper Ordovician to Middle Devonian rocks within the Little North Mountain fault system.
