Where Interstate 64 crosses the Blue Ridge, some fine exposures of Catoctin Formation greenstone may be found.

    Maybe I'm not being clear. I'm not referring to a regional fault. I see the central block in this image as a slide block that detached from the upper slope along a mini listric fault plane surface. The grabens at the top on either side of the block are areas that were evacuated by the block. I see that whole block as having moved down slope. Look along the top of that mountain and notice how anomalously positioned that block is.

    I'm not aware of any normal / listric faulting documented in this region, but I can see how that impression is given by the image... :)

    That whole central block seems to have slipped down the hill along a listric fault exposed on the left. Also I love the strata sticking out of the hill on the upper right! Fascinating photo.

Where in the World is this GigaPan?
