Geo 365: March 1, Day 60: Table Rock Tuff

A bit farther back from yesterday's view, the hammer has not been moved. The ball-and-pillow structure from that photo is visible to the left of the hammer handle, and there are similar, though more subtle, examples to the right of the hammer handle. A minor fault with a few inches of normal offset runs from upper left  toward lower right across the middle- the chisel tip of the hammer is pretty much right on it. Meanwhile, the hammer itself is hanging in a vertical joint. Just under the head of the hammer is some nice cross-bedding.

There's a lot going on here, but that's fairly typical for Table Rock. Full size view is recommended.
