Geo 730: July 3, Day 549: What a Drag

Looking more closely at the reverse fault in yesterday's photo, drag folding is apparent in the hanging block. This is the clue I'm using to establish that it is, in fact, a reverse fault, not a low-angle normal fault. The beds are too rhythmic and self-similar for me to have any confidence in correlating across the fracture.
