Left-lateral strike-slip fault NM 337

There is a whole structural geology lab exposed along NM highway 337 south of Tijeras. I caught the light just right on this left-lateral strike-slip fault right along the road to see the sense of motion really well. This close-up shows the mullions (steps) indicating a left sense of motion. The side I am facing has moved left relative to the side I am standing on.
