A comparative look at the Klingle Valley outcrop

Posted by Callan Bentley

A week ago, I featured six new GigaPans here, of the extraordinary rocks in Klingle Valley, DC.

I hadn’t been able to get the next phase of imaging that site ready in time for the post, but here it is: an annotated view of the outcrop.

Annotation color code:

PINK = Granite contact
BLUE = Sericite after staurolite pseudomorphs
YELLOW = Outlines of stretched clasts within the metaconglomerate
GREEN = Edges of lichens growing on the surface of the outcrop

Comparative viewer screenshot and link, so you can explore it for yourself:

Pretty cool, eh?
