Geo 730: Feb. 13, Day 409: Tuff to Distinguish

Still farther to the left from yesterday's photo, and looking up the hill, we see some tafoni-pocked weathering in what looks to be a fairly uniform, homogenous, tuff. This kind of has the look of ash fall, but water transported versus ash fall tuff can be difficult to distinguish, even up close, which I didn't get in this case. The power lines are a good landmark to look for in the location department. There are some power lines near the spot that I've been placing the FE location, but not this close. I need to reconsider.

Photo unmodified. August 19, 2011. FlashEarth Location (probably incorrect).
