Description

A lovely exposure (though rather harshly lit) of the contact between two Cambro-Ordovician limestones in the Shenandoah Valley.
Geologic map of the site is here: ngmdb.usgs.gov/ngm-bin/pdp/zui_viewer.pl?id=14868 Will open in a new tab or window
The same contact can be seen in the vicinity of Strasburg, Virginia, here:
www.gigapan.com/gigapans/78234
Cleavage and passive folding of the contact resulted from the late Paleozoic Alleghanian Orogeny.
