Friday fold: loopy limestone in Utah

Posted by Callan Bentley

Octavia Sawyer is back with a fresh Friday fold from her haunts out in Utah! This is:

Maxfield limestone, which would make it Cambrian. Where the fold is located, the outcrop comes to a point, sort of like the corner of a building, so it’s hard to show the whole thing in one photo. The “center” photo was taken from directly in front of the corner; the “left” photo was taken from the left side, looking along the face/wall out toward the corner; etc. Location is in the foothills east of Provo, Utah, in a disused gravel pit and limestone quarry.


Pretty nice outcrop! Thanks for sharing, Octavia!
