Geo 730: October 10, Day 648: The Astoria Formation Has Its Faults

Another view, with a different orientation and closer in, of the same faults as in yesterday's photo. There are quite a few apparent offsets, but as I noted at the previous link, some of those may simply be tricks of perspective, as more or less planar bedding forms intersect with a complex three-dimensional surface. However, at least one- in the middle left- shows clear displacement.
