Friday fold: Gansbaai

Posted by Callan Bentley

A small mountain inland of Gansbaai, South Africa (where one goes to cage-dive with great white sharks) shows some of the folding characteristic of the Cape Fold Belt. Let’s zoom in…

A few bedding traces annotated, to ease your armchair fold-viewing experience.

I think this is my final photo from South Africa… Wow. Only took me 1.05 years to get them all up on this blog. Next up: polishing off my summer 2011 roadtrip, my eastern California trip of last spring, the El Paso, Texas, trip from 11 months ago, and the Canadian Rockies trip from last summer. Sheesh – a backlog indeed.

Happy Friday!
