Summary:

Pg. 69 (fig. 1), 71-73. Stump Arroyo member of Crooked Creek formation. Name applied to basal part of Crooked Creek formation. Consists of coarse sand, reddish to light tan, and well sorted, containing white quartz pebbles; grades upward into finer more poorly sorted sand, with calcareous nodules at top. Thickness a little more than 10 feet. Unconformably overlies Missler member (new) of Meade formation (redefined). In some areas where the Crooked Creek is not extensively developed, Pearlette Ash member rests directly on the Stump Arroyo. Age is Pleistocene.
Type locality: in sec. 21, T. 38 S., R. 28 W., Meade Co., southwestern KS. Gravels of member form high surface rubble in sec. 10, T. 33 S., R. 29 W., along tributary of Stump Arroyo north of the Deer Park and west of the northwest corner of Deer Park. Named from tributary of Crooked Creek which flows through Meade County State Park and empties into Crooked Creek, in sec. 29, T. 33 S., R. 28 W.
