Chartreuse Arch in the French Alps - MemePix

France Alps. フレンチ・アルプスでみられる天然のアーチ。石灰岩の地層にカルスト作用で穴ができたものだが、急斜面にあり、穴の幅が30mを超え、穴が二重になっている点がユニーク。登山道から見えにくい場所にあるため、2005年に地元の登山家が初めて報告。 https://twitter.com/ogugeo/status/338419179231260672 ...だって。 どっちが上だか平衡感覚がおかしくなる。おそらく右下の影もそれに拍車をかけている。

The La Sal Mountains laccolith (a shallow, mushroom-shaped igneous intrusion) of Oligocene age rises above the red Mesozoic and Paleozoic sedimentary rocks exposed in the Colorado River drainage. Washer Woman Arch, visible in the upper part of the small butte in the middle foreground, is eroded out of the Triassic-Jurassic-aged Wingate Sandstone.

Wildflowers on Lone Peak bloom among quartz monzonite (granitic) boulders of the Oligocene-aged Little Cottonwood stock. Near-vertical cliffs on the skyline form part of the glacier-carved cirque near the summit of the 11,253-foot-high peak.

Beyond the 350,000-year-old Sullivans Knoll (Volcano Mountain) cinder cone near the town of Hurricane, the snow-covered Pine Valley Mountains are the eroded remnants of one of the world’s largest laccoliths, a shallow, mushroom-shaped igneous intrusion that formed about 20 million years ago. The red, Jurassic-aged Navajo Sandstone in the middle ground is on the northwest-tilted limb of a large upwarp called the Virgin anticline.

POTD September 11, 2013: Little Cottonwood Canyon, Wasatch Range, Salt Lake County, Utah Photographer: Mike Hylland  Ice Age (late Pleistocene) glaciers carved a classic U-shaped valley into granitic rock of the Oligocene-aged Little Cottonwood stock at Little Cottonwood Canyon. Across Salt Lake Valley, the Oquirrh Mountains are home to the Bingham Canyon mine, the largest open-pit copper mine in North America.

POTD August 12, 2013: Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument, Garfield County, Utah Photographer: Michael Vanden Berg  Sausageleaf talinum finds suitable habitat in sand and spherical concretions eroded from the lower part of the Jurassic-aged Navajo Sandstone. The concretions (about half an inch in diameter) formed when iron-oxide minerals precipitated out of ground water that flowed through the sandstone.

POTD August 20, 2013: Temple of the Sun, Capitol Reef National Park, Wayne County, Utah Photographer: Michael Vanden Berg Two of Capitol Reef National Park’s popular attractions: Glass Mountain (foreground) and Temple of the Sun (background). Glass Mountain is a large exposed mound of selenite gypsum that formed within the Jurassic-aged Entrada Sandstone. The “gypsum plug” became exposed as the relatively soft Entrada Sandstone eroded away.

A geologist examines a sequence of Early Cretaceous-aged paleosols (ancient soils) in the Yellow Cat Member of the Cedar Mountain Formation. Many dinosaur fossils are found in these rocks, and the study of paleosols can provide valuable information about the environments in which these dinosaurs lived.

A small window in the Slick Rock Member of the Entrada Sandstone frames a view of Utah’s most famous landform, Delicate Arch. The arch is composed of Jurassic-aged sandstone including the Slick Rock Member (base and pedestals) and Moab Member of the Curtis Formation (bridge). In the distance, Oligocene-aged igneous rock forms the snow-covered La Sal Mountains. Arches National Park, Grand County Photographer: Michael Vanden Berg

Cambrian- to Ordovician-aged carbonate rocks make up Notch Peak, where a 2,200-foot cliff (possibly the tallest carbonate cliff in North America) leads to a deep canyon on the west side of the peak. Pink, Jurassic-aged granite is exposed at the foot of the mountain, and scattered deposits of white, clayey marl deposited in Lake Bonneville during the late Pleistocene are present on the valley floor.
