Friday fold: Ouray Limestone, Colorado
Posted by Callan Bentley
Kim Hannula shares a fold today:
The rocks folded here mostly the Devonian Ouray Limestone. There’s a fault through the outcrop, and another fault to the left of the photo. Regionally, the faults are mapped as normal faults, mostly with the east (right in photo) side down. Locally, that’s not what I see in this outcrop, which makes this a funky place to look at a fold with class…
Thanks for sharing, Kim! Happy Friday, all!
