This outcrop is located along the new portions of West Virginia Route 55 west of the town of Moorefield. The view is looking at the south side of the freeway and is the on the eastern side of an incredible roadcut exposure of folded paleozoic sedimentary strata over 500 meters long.
I shot this location as several stand alone gigapans which I am attempting to stitch into one large gigapn covering the entire exposure.
This fine example of tectonic folding is seen in Silurian/Devonian limestones, siltstones and shales (likely) from the Tonoloway Formation. Geologists interpret this sequence of rocks as evidence of a period of tectonic peace during the middle of the paleozoic.
Deformation of these passive margin sediments occured long after deposition in the Alleghenian Orogeny when Africa crashed into the North American Plate to form Pangea
