GEOLOGIC MAP OF SAN FRANCISCO MOUNTAIN, ELDEN MOUNTAIN, AND DRY LAKE HILLS, COCONINO COUNTY, ARIZONA By Richard F. Holm INTRODUCTION The igneous rocks of the San Francisco Mountain volcanic center are so variable lithologically and so complexly related struc­ turally and stratigraphically that they are described below in detail in order to make the geologic map more useful. Pleistocene-age lavas at Mount Elden are dacites - to be more precise, biotite-hornblende-hypersthene dacite. Aerial photos show the large lobes that the sluggish lava flows created on the mountain’s south and west sides. The interesting rock formations resulting from the cooling and shrinking of lava attest to the volcanic origins of Mt.
