Iverness in Marin County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Point Reyes Conglomerate
Point Reyes National Seashore
Here you can see layers intersecting at different angles (cross bedding), and rounded cavities caused by the erosion of poorly cemented materials. Notice also that in any one layer the larger sand grains which sank first are at the bottom, while the finer ones lie on top (graded bedding)
Please do not chip or pick at the conglomerate.
Leave it intact for others to enjoy.
Erected by National Park Service.
