Geo 365: Nov. 15, Day 319: Fractured Sandstone

Looking at a tilted slab of the rock at the same stop as yesterday, the pervasive fracturing is clear. This is pretty typical in Klamath exposures- if anything, this rock is unusually fresh and undeformed for this region. This is also a greywacke, I think, though better sorted and finer grained than the boulder we saw out on the cape.
