Layers in Mesa in Aureum Chaos

The Story in Layers
Our objective is to examine some very nicely exposed layers in a mesa wall in Aureum Chaos. As the name “chaos” suggests, this terrain is characterized by randomly oriented, large-scale mesas and knobs that are heavily eroded and dominate the area.
