The last word was upturned, as if it were a question.
The idea is still better confirmed farther north in Wyoming, where the Laramie Range, flanked with upturned strata on the east and west, is for the most part a broad upland at altitudes of 7000 or 8000 ft., with no strong surmounting summits, and as yet no deep carved valleys.
Lq The sporophyll, usually almost horizontal in position, has an upturned lamina beyond the sporangium, and a shorter dorsal lobe, so that the form of the whole is somewhat peltate.
The upturned tips of the bracts are only shown in every alternate verticil.
They are easily recognized by their long body and tail, and elongated, upturned snout; from which last feature the Germans call them Rihsselbdren or "snouted bears."
