Friday fold: Shuswap marble, British Columbia

Posted by Callan Bentley

Howard Allen, a blog reader from Canada, digitized a bunch of folds for us from his old Kodachrome slides. You’ll be seeing selections from these images over the weeks to come. Get psyched! There are some great folds in this batch. Here’s the first:


Howard’s description:

3D folded marble, Shuswap Metamorphic Complex, north of Sicamous, British Columbia. Specimen was bulldozed out of the way for a logging road. Photographed in 1980 when I had a summer job working for a mineral exploration company. I *so* wished I could have this one in my front garden.

Thanks, Howard! Everyone else: enjoy your Friday, and send me your fold photos!
