Cathedral Rock #4

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 21 June 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Geologically, Cathedral Rock is carved from the Permian Schnebly Hill formation, a redbed sandstone formed from coastal sand dunes near the shoreline of the ancient Pedregosa Sea. Ripple marks are prominent along the lower Cathedral Rock trail, and a black basalt dike may be seen in the first saddle.

This view was captured from Chapel of the Holy Cross.

Photo captured May 6, 2013.
