Monday Geology Picture: Mudcracks

Posted by Evelyn Mervine


Mudcracks, with my foot for scale.

Here is a delightful picture of some mudcracks, taken during somewhere in the western USA in Fall 2005 when I was on my undergraduate field program “The Stretch.” I don’t remember exactly where this picture was taken, but I recently found it again in my folder of field camp photos. I think this picture also shows little round imprints from a recent light rainfall on the mud– what do you think?
