Friday fold: quarry denizen

Posted by Callan Bentley

This beastie lives in an old quarry in West Virginia, along old Route 55.

And from a slightly different perspective…

This fold is in Devonian limestones of the Helderberg Group, kinked up probably during the Alleghanian Orogeny (the assembly of Pangea) in the late Paleozoic.
