Honeycomb Weathering

A honeycomb pattern has also formed on a few weathered surfaces. This forms when groundwater moving through the rock deposits iron minerals that are more resistant to weathering than the surrounding rock. The iron minerals stand out when the rock is weathered.

This photo was taken on a slump block along along the left side of the road from Kildoo Falls to the mill.
