Geo 730: June 6, Day 523: Organic-Rich

A final shot of the organic-rich mud/silt beds between (what I suspect are) turbidite sands along Route 42 in the southern end of Oregon's Coast Range. Fortunately, we had a stop later where the rock was on our side of the road, and we didn't have to worry about traffic to get to it, though its nature was clearly more deltaic than this appears to be.
