Intersection of Curvilinear Ridge and Butte

Intersection of Curvilinear Ridge and Butte

Ridge Meets Butte
The curved ridge is darker than surroundings and appears to be an inverted stream channel. At this location, the inverted stream is interrupted or diverted by the presence of a couple of buttes or knobs. The main objective here is to get very high resolution coverage of the inverted stream materials (sedimentary rock?) and to include the buttes and attempt to discern their origins and relations to the old stream channel system.
