This beautiful mound of Travertine is located in the streambed of Tumbling Run, south of Strasburg, Virginia. Tumbling Run is depositing this travertine (or tuffa) along the banks and streambed and has incised down into its own travertine deposits. This exposure is really bulbous and the smooth rounded faces look more to me like travertine exposed in caves rather than travertine deposited in streams. The Calcareous bedrock, which Tumbling Run flows across, is the source of the Calcium Carbonate, which is then deposited in the stream.
