In this panorama, the Potomac River can be seen flowing through Mather Gorge in Great Falls Park. It was taken from the Virginia side of Great Falls, looking towards the Maryland side. Cliffs of metagraywacke line Mather Gorge, and have been dated at ~460 Ma. Steeply dipping lamprophyre dikes can be seen intruding into the metagraywacke. A crystallization age of ~360 Ma has been obtained from K/Ar dating of biotite in the dikes.
