Geo 365: Nov. 29, Day 333: Rip-Ups

Looking at the base of the outcrop in yesterday's photo, the main rock type is sandstone, but there are several rip-ups to the left and above the hammer. In particular, the one immediately left of the chisel tip is very pretty. There are fractures all over this rock, too, but looking closely, I don't see offsets on any of them, so they're joints, not faults.

Photo unmodified. May 7, 2013. FlashEarth location.
