    Ron, you are right, it is difficult to get a sense of scale. At least I should have asked somebody to stand in front of the outcrop (I usually do that), but in this case there was no time for that. There are definitely cobbles in the conglomerate, but probably no boulders. The age is supposed to be late Cenomanian (according to the paper that I linked to in the description); and I don't know much about the composition of the clasts. I didn't get any good shots of the conglomerates (in fact, never got very close to the rocks...).

    It's always a bit of a challenge to get a good sense of scale in big panoramic shots like this. How big would you say the maximum diameter of these conglomerate clasts is? Small cobbles? Any boulders? Also, any more precise depositional age for these? Finally, did you get a chance to shoot the conglomerate beds up close? I'd love to compare these to my Ph.D. thesis rocks at Gualala: e.g., www.gigapan.org/gigapans/14628/
