Monday Geology Picture: A Vineyard & the Cape Fold Belt

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

The Cape Fold Belt, viewed from the Stellenbosch winelands outside of Cape Town, South Africa.

For this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” here’s a view of the Cape Fold Belt with a vineyard in the foreground. I took this picture yesterday when I took a short walk with some friends through a vineyard located in the Stellenbosch winelands, just outside of my home city of Cape Town. You can see some impressive folding in those distant mountains!
