Mini-Geology in Dirt

You'll find all the dirt on flickr... in my set for Chloride, Arizona. This image may appear to show geological formations as in the Grand Canyon, yet it is merely a bit of dirt and tailings from a mine. I am focusing on the dirt just before my feet and the little "canyon" two feet further. It is atop a huge mound of tailings left from mining activities about 50 years ago.

 

Images are from December 2006, taken during a rockhound expedition to played out mines in Chloride, Arizona. This is one of many images focusing on the mini-geology of dirt.
