Description

A very curious roadcut. On the left side of the cut the Fort Hays Limestone depositionally overlies the Blue Hill Shale. On the west side of the cut Codell sandstone is exposed in the footwall of an eastward dipping fault. Slickensides on the fault surface suggest dip-slip offset. Thing is, where it does occur the Codell sandstone normally occurs depositionally between the Blue Hill and Fort Hays. Makes this a real head scratcher...
