About This Publication
This map and its cross sections and related text illustrate and describe the geology of a Central Texas area (Pace Bend, Smithwick, Spicewood, and Travis Peak 7.5-minute quadrangles) having diverse substrates and landforms. The area, cut by the impounded Colorado and Pedernales Rivers, is undergoing transformation from ranch land to various types of economic development, including residential, commercial, recreational, and rock/mineral resource extraction. Strata of the area, consisting of Cambrian, Ordovician, Devonian, Mississippian, Pennsylvanian, and Lower Cretaceous rocks and Quaternary sediments, record a long geologic history.
