Geo 730: October 8, Day 646: Pitfalls of Fieldwork

Here's another example of hazards on the other side of the fence. I suspect a sea cave has been eroded along a fault and/or a sedimentary contact into the cliff face, and the ceiling has collapsed, leaving this sinkhole. However, despite the hazards, it was frustrating to see all the interesting rocks just right over there, and not be able to get a closer look. Is that jumbled rock around the pit breccia or re-worked conglomerate? I can't say.
