Geo 730: Jan. 10, Day 375: A Different Perspective

Another shot from Dana, this was taken at the same time as yesterday's photo. We're looking at the same scene from a different angle- I would be standing just off to the left of this frame. The chilled margins should be apparent, and to the lower right is the edge of yet another dike. There may be some igneous layering in the coarser, more gabbroic, rock between those two dikes, but it's hard to be certain. Remember, the dikes would have originally been nearly vertical, and igneous layering would be essentially horizontal, so the orientations relative to each other look right.

Photo by Dana Hunter, unmodified. May 8, 2013. FlashEarth Location actually kinda looks like it might be right. Indexed
