guide to the geology of this area earlier today, aimed at a less technical audience. Stop 3, to which the link will take you, can be thought of as roughly the boundary between the lower crust magma chamber in a spreading ridge (back-arc, not mid-ocean), and the overlying middle crust, dominated by sheeted dikes.
Photo unmodified. May 8, 2013. FlashEarth location. (Uncertain- the geometry of the scene and placement in the geological sequence look right, as well as the presence of a pull-out, but there were no landmarks for me to nail down where I was.)
