Extended View along Cave Point

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 21 January 2021 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The rocks exposed at Cave Point are from the Silurian Period, a geologic time period which lasted from approximately 435 million years to 410 million years ago. During the Silurian Period, the area that is now Cave Point was located near the earth's equator. Coral reefs thrived in what was then a tropical sea. Over the millions of years throughout the Silurian Period, the remains of the marine plants, animals and calcareous sands were deposited and accumulated. These materials and the conditions that existed, followed by millions of years of compaction and chemical alteration, resulted in the formation of dolomite. This is the type of bedrock exposed at Cave Point. Cave Point is located on approximately 19 acres of land in the Town of Sevastopol.

Nice view and very interesting that the sedimentary layers have remained in the plane that they formed with no folding, leaving a perfectly level pavement.

Diane from Parksville, Canada

Being a dog guardian, when I see that lovely trail within the trees, I envision walking along there with my dog and if the dog were to be off-leash she could so easily, and unknowingly, accidentally fall off that cliff into the water. But I'm sure the area is likely a place where pets must be on-leash. whew. Crazy the things that come to mind! :-)
