Cross Bedding


Click for larger image.

 

Cross beds are thin layers that are deposited at angles to the main layers of the rock. They formed by the deposition of sands in ripples and dunes by currents in streams. The flow that deposited these cross beds was from left to right. These cross beds also exhibit honeycomb weathering.

This photos is taken on a slump block of Homewood Sandstone along the left side of the road from Kildoo Falls to the mill.
