Geo 885: Lovely, But Not Without Fault

Sunset Bay is gorgeous, but not without fault. In fact, the whole thing is eroded around a major (inferred, but not directly observable, as far as I can tell) fault that slices through the middle of it. That major fault has quite a number of smaller, directly observable, subsidiary faults, such as the one above. This photo could have been framed a little more clearly; the prominent bed in the lower left correlates with the one on the far right. The bed running through the upper middle correlates with the tiny bit on the left middle. This spot is easily found in what is now called "Zoom Earth." (See crosshairs)

Photo unmodified. July 21, 2016. ZoomEarth location.
