Friday Field Foto (Geopics, Day 5)
Today's picture is from south-central Utah near the town of Sevier. I'm not sure what the name of the conglomerate the students are running around on, but it's approximately correlative to the Indianola or Price River formations (Late Cretaceous). This is stuff that was tumbling down the mountains being uplifted during the Sevier orogeny.
I was shooting pictures with a tilt-shift lens, so I made everything look a little funky on purpose. But you can also see the canon-ball-sized boulders that make up much of this sedimentary rock.
