Bogus Rim above Bogus Creek valley. Talus covers thick section of fluviolacustrine seds that sit atop the Arock (?) lava
Landslides from Bogus Rim instigated by thick fine-grained sequence...some augerable holes out there.
Good view showing that the lava beneath Bogus Point extends beneath Bogus Rim. Note also crescent shaped lava fin in Bogus Ck valley...Clarks Butte?
Abundance of worked lithics on surface of incipient / failed landslide off Bogus Rim.
Bogus Creek valley clogged with West Crater lava and hemmed in by Arock lava.
Bogus Creek Valley.
Surprise! A snake under the truck.
This crow got surprisingly close.
Intact Tsv overlain by bouldery landslide material.
Closed depression on West Crater flow. Below the big crack.
Nice view of lone Qbw remnant across from Lambert Rocks.
There are two prominent flow units in Qbw. They are separated by gravel.
Atop the big E-W crack in Qbw.
Rounded pea gravel and cobbles on Qbw at Dogleg.
Lots of bowling balls dripping down the south side of Dogleg here. This point right above the intraflow paleochannel.
Sediment lens between two flow units in the Basalt of West Crater. More extensive than expected.
Some pillows evident here.
My pack in the shadow for scale.
Fresh mudflow...likely from June weather
Qbw inset against Miocene lava here...I think
Always take a picture of that fault
Boulder field all the way to the end of the Qbw outcrop
This big hump is a boulder bar.
On my way to Airplane Point...the hard way.
Part of Qbw peeled away here.
Some rounded boulders on the Qbw surface downstream from Airplane Pt exposure
AM-PM camp area.
Forgot about the Qbw remnant tucked away in the rhyolite cliff
Sequence below Bogus Rim has fluvio-lacustrine sed, older lava, big lava delta....
This lava delta section pinches out around the corner on the way to Iron Point.
Classic palagonitized pillow breccia, no?
Dude...my pillow is too hard.
Good view of the lava sequence below the Bogus Rim and underlying clastics.
Fine-grained seds daylighting below the Bogus Rim lava.
The lacustrine muds under the Bogus Rim lava are likely culprits in the high level landsliding here. What dam resulted in this lake?
Bogus Rim over fluviolacustrine over lava over pillows over lava. From what dam come the lacustrine seds?
Could find no clear evidence that the middle lava remnant is not the oldest of the three here.
View into the Hole from Rinehart Cliffs.
Duane scouting for drilling opportunities.
The awesome Rinehart Cliffs.
Exposure Fail. Note the obscenely thick lava, however.
The lava in Rinehart Creek Chasm is really thick. I believe that all three intracanyon units are here...the oldest is tiny.
Baked gravel zone evident. Will never get there.
Howdy! Lovin' life on the Owyhee.
First ones here!
Crack along the perimeter of the Rinehart Cliffs
Another large crack along the perimeter of the Rinehart Cliffs.
Bogus Rim capped by fan gravel. Lava overlies fan gravels that grade up from lacustrine seds. Lacustrine seds overlie older lava.
The classic Bogus lava cream sandwich cookie.
Had never seen the lower inset lava flow. Check it out. The upper feature is landslid Bogus Rim; the low, continuous lava is in the Miocene section.
Thick package of fluviolacustrine sed between bogus lavas here induces slope failure.
Oh yeah there are three lavas here. The lowest one reaches very low.
Maybe I should do a gigapan of me!
Bogus Rim lava remnant in Jackson Creek Canyon. Overlies fan gravels. Much less Bogus lava in this part of canyon than I had inferred from images and photos from across the gorge.
There are freaking gloves all over the place...
The gigapan setup. Middle of nowhere.
These bighorns knocked down some huge rocks. That is how some of them fall, for sure.
Three old intracanyon lavas? You betcha.
I love the Rinehart Cliffs.
I was the only one around...imagine.
One lonely juniper.
This landslide is freakin' awesome.
scary bug eating pretty bug
Seriously, I met a strange yet compelling woman with a rifle, mountain bike, and spandex pants on this remote road in 2007.
