The Angel Cove 7.5' quadrangle is located east of Hanksville in southeastern Utah’s scenic redrock Canyonlands country. It consists of broad benches mantled by eolian, residual, and alluvial deposits, and incised by deep narrow canyons. Some of the tributary canyons are hundreds of feet deep but only a foot or two wide at the bottom, and are popular slot canyons commonly explored by adventurers. The Dirty Devil River, formed from the union of the Fremont River and Muddy Creek, flows south-southeast through the quadrangle in route to the Colorado River. The Dirty Devil carves an entrenched, 1300-foot deep, meandering canyon, cutting ever deeper into the strata and crudely following a shallow syncline in the warped table land. Bedrock units range from the Lower Jurassic-Upper Triassic Wingate Sandstone to the Middle Jurassic Entrada Sandstone, which weathers to produce much of the sand veneer. Partially buried by the sand veneer are broad pediment and terrace gravel benches containing pebbles and cobbles from the nearby Henry Mountains.
