Geo 365: Nov. 8, Day 312: North Cove

Looking down into the north cove at Cape Banco, there's a trail down to the beach. We went down as far as the sign, but didn't feel compelled to go all the way down- we learned our lesson the previous year: multiple walks down to the beach mean multiple climbs back up, so choose wisely. The interpretive sign is a rather generic one I've seen many times, picturing and naming some common tidepool organisms. Looking at the point, there appears to be some bedding striking roughly parallel to the line of sight, and dipping maybe 20 degrees or so to the left. The rock here is poorly sorted, texturally immature sandstone to conglomerate, with a low grade metamorphic overprint. We'll have a closer look at it tomorrow.
