Saw more nice trace fossils in the Imo.
Got a few points on the Middle Fork where it leaves the Shirley quad and enters Greers Ferry Lake.
Found these deformation bands right by Highway 16 near Fairfield Bay. These bands are associated with structural features like faults and folds. They form in more coarsely grained sandstone when the stress crushes the individual sand grains along a plane, then recrystallizes to form a slightly more resistant lithology, that when weatherd, stand in slight relief. We will keep looking in this area for more clues and hopefully figure out what the rocks are trying to tell us!
