The Massanutten sandstone is a Silurian-aged passive margin deposit that is correlative to the Tuscarora Formation of the western Valley & Ridge province. A bed is exposed here in a subvertical orientation along the Woodstock Tower Road, near its summit. Perspective is looking across strike to the west-northwest. Trace fossils (Arthrophycus?) may be observed in many orientations within the bedding plane; In this version of the GigaPan, those traces have been highlighted with blue lines. It can (should) be compared with the non-annotated version, here: gigapan.com/gigapans/124277
Structural orientation (right-hand rule) of bedding: 037°, 84°
