Friday fold: Sandy Hollow from the air

Posted by Callan Bentley

My friend and colleague Mike Plautz sent me this photo today, from an airplane above the region east of Dillon, Montana.

I dialed up the contrast and saturation of the photo to make it “pop” a bit more, and I’m pleased with the result. Many, many geology students will recognize this site, a patch of BLM land called Sandy Hollow, adjacent to Block Mountain (just northeast of the cloud shadows). It’s a favorite mapping site for field camps. As such, I won’t say any more here about its structure; but I did want to share this wondrous site with Mountain Beltway readers. It’s too good to pass by.
