Geo 365: July 13, Day 194: More Folded Flournoy

Last Saturday, I showed a view of these same contorted rocks looking across the Umpqua River. Today, we see them looking across the Garden Valley Highway. Despite its position on a convergent plate boundary, it's surprisingly difficult to find outcrop-scale folding in western Oregon. This particular spot is not well understood, but it is a fun variation on the typical gentle dips we see around here. Various size viewing options can be seen by right clicking on the image here.
