Geo 730: July 4, Day 550: Auntie Kline

A sweet little anticline along Garden Valley Road and the Umpqua River downstream from Roseburg, Oregon. We almost never get to see nice folding like this in Western Oregon. There is plenty of mild regional deformation, but very little in outcrop-scale. It's a lot easier to find sample-size folding, but that's mostly soft-sediment, penecontemporaneous deformation... though actually, this may be soft or "semi-soft" deformation too. No one seems to be very confident about just what is going on here.
