Geology Friday! On Monday!

Sorry all you faithful readers, I had a combination of Field Work and Beer Drinking session on Friday and neglected to update the blog with my Friday Geology Pic.

Here it is:

Check out the folds in the cliff in the foreground. There's another cliff in the background, near the horizon. The background cliff is the hanging wall of a thrust fault, and the foreground folds are a result of footwall rocks being dragged along the fault itself.

Folds and faults with the Devonian Dolostone: the Guillemette formation.

I love the look of rocks that are so brittle when hit with a hammer, but display folds like they were huge smooshed pieces of taffy.

good stuff.
