Cathedral Rock

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 31 March 2021 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. This view is also captured from the other side from where last week's image was taken.

From the archives...........Photo captured May 6, 2013.
