Friday Field Photo #186: Coastal California Turbidites
It’s been two years since we moved from California to Virginia, time flies! We really love where we live now, but there are times where I do miss California. I especially miss exploring the outcrops along the coast. Many of these wave-washed bluffs have gorgeous exposures of bed-scale sedimentary geology, a real delight for those who like sedimentary structures.
The above photo shows some Paleocene turbidites along beach cliffs in the town of Gualala, a few hours north of the Bay Area.
