Geo 730: Feb. 11, Day 407: Channel Close-Up

After placing the hammer, I took a somewhat closer photo of yesterday's channel. You can see it's cut into an older, much more bouldery debris flow, but again, the volcanic nature of the clasts dominates. The light yellow/buff block above and to the left of the hammer appears to be the same lacustrine/floodplain deposits that form the right edge of this older flow (possibly flows).

Photo unmodified. August 19, 2011. FlashEarth Location (somewhat uncertain).
