Geo 730: June 30, Day 546: Hammer for Scale

The move is complete, the new place is nice (though awfully hot in the afternoon and early evening), and while my body has not yet entirely forgiven me, it's not as achy, stiff and sore as it has been the last couple days. So back to the rocks. Above we see the same conglomerate as in the previous Geo 730 post, this time with a hammer for scale. There are parts of this outcrop where imbrication is clearly evident, indicating a right-to-left current direction. This makes good sense; the deeper basin was to the left (north, going by modern geography), and the land and depositing river system to the right. However, if there is imbrication in this photo, it's subtle; I wouldn't use this picture to illustrate the concept.
