This report describes rock units and surficial deposits, their economic and engineering potential, and geologic hazards that can impact use of the land. The Smithsonian Butte quadrangle, with its south border on the Utah-Arizona state line, is in southwest Utah 24 miles east of St. George. The nearest communities - Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Arizona - are about 2 miles southeast. Zion National Park is a few miles north of the map area. The quadrangle takes its name from the butte named by geologist Clarence Dutton as a tribute to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., which supported his scientific expeditions in the region.
