Sherman Mountains are erosional remnants rising above the general surface of
the Laramie Range. The flat topped
of the range resulted from beveling during an ancient erosion cycle.
Bedrock here is made of pink feldspar, glassy
black mica and hornblende, which originated deep in the earth's crust over a
billion years ago.
peculiar rock forms of the Sherman Mountains are controlled by three
sets of joints, or planes of weakness, cutting the granite
dividing it into large blocks. Weathering has rounded off
corners and has enlarged joint planes, resulting in irregular
masses, many of which are capped by balanced rocks.
