Description

The Baraboo Quartzite, before metamorphism, was laid down as sand ~1.7 billion years ago. Here, the bedding is tilted up to vertical due to a large synclinal fold that forms the Baraboo Hills of Wisconsin. You're actually looking at the underside of the layers here-- making it effectively a cast of the ripples that existed just below this layer.
