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.
A familiar look of determination was on her upturned face.
The larvae of the tortoise-beetles have the curious habit of forming an umbrella-like shield out of their own excrement, held in position by the upturned tail-process.
The afternoon sun penetrated the mass of honeysuckle that covered the porch, and fell on my upturned face.
He glanced up at her, amusement in the upturned corner of his full lips.
Sam was a tall redhead with large blue eyes and a sprinkle of freckles over an upturned nose.
The freckles sprinkled over that upturned nose gave her a youthful look, though he guessed her to be nearer his age.
And lying upon the upturned edges of the greatly denuded Silurian grits and shales.
The fault in fact was being formed during the deposition of the Siwalik beds, and as the beds were laid down, the Himalaya were pushed forward over them, the Siwaliks themselves being folded and upturned during the process.
Accordingly, in some places the Siwaliks now form a continuous and conformable series from base to summit, in other places the middle beds are absent and the upper beds of the series rest upon the upturned and denuded edges of the lower beds.
Ater, in which they are bright red, and this bird is further remarkable for its laterally compressed and much upturned bill.
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."
The upturned tips of the bracts are only shown in every alternate verticil.
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.
This mountain mass is of flat-arched, dome-like structure, now well dissected by radiating consequent streams, so that the weaker uppermost strata have been eroded down to the level of the plains where their upturned edges are evenly truncated, and the next following harder strata have been sufficiently eroded to disclose the core of underlying crystalline rocks in about half of the domed area.
Along the eastern side of the Front Range in Colorado most of the upturned stratified formations have been so well worn down that, except for a few low piedmont ridges, their even surface may now be included with that of the plains, and the crystalline core of the range is exposed almost to the mountain base.
That these high plateaus are planes of erosion is shown by their independence of geological structure, the upturned edges of the vertical and contorted schists having been abruptly shorn off and the granite having been wasted and levelled along its exposed surface.
Few crowded neighbourhoods are visible, and the characteristic features of the scene which meets the eye are the upturned roofs of temples, palaces, and mansions, gay with blue, green and yellow glazed tiles, glittering among the groves of trees with which the city abounds.
Alex brought one hand up toward his mouth and brought it down to an upturned palm.
