Those could be pillows

Posted by Callan Bentley

More pillow-like structures, seen in the Catoctin Formation, on the west side of the Blue Ridge Parkway about ten miles south of Interstate 64.

Mini Sharpie for scale – what do you think? They don’t seem to be as strongly fracture-controlled as the Stony Man area “pillows.” But dang, they sure are small…

Read the context here, and then asses this new outcrop for likeliness of pillowhood.
