Entrada Sandstone, Utah - 2015

Jeff Valenza and his advisor Doc Tom Morris invited me, Dario Ventra and Michelle Meadows to go out to their amazing field site in the Estrada sandstone in central Utah. This is a really spectacular set of dune sandstones, mudstones, sabkha and fluvial deposits all in a fairly close area, and that I hadn't really been aware of before. It was amazing learning from the expertise of Doc and Dario, and seeing some neat things. You'll see fracture fill, tilted beds, badlands erosion, salt weathering, high-angle cross beds from rapid flow, ripple laminae, ancient preserved mud cracks, some very blueberry-esque lag deposits and my favorite - tiny yardangs. Or regular ones with a giant finger by them...
