Exposed foliated rock in Placitas Aureole. Measurements were taken of the trough jutting out in the center of the photo. Strike-and-dip of the axial plane is 029, 66 E and the trend-and-plunge is 50-->054. September 12, 2016

Foliated rock in the Placitas Aureole. The pencil in the picture is pointing in the direction of the lineation that I measured. The measurement was 39-->185. This is a small-scale fold about 10-12 cm wide. It is made of mix of quartz, feldspars, and biotite. September 12, 2016
