Sedimentary rocks in the Zambezi Valley

Geologically, there are lots of things going on in this pic…I took it fairly close to where the road crosses the Ume River, after the turn off to the Bumi Hills. It fascinates me that one layer of sediment is cut off and then another layer is added at a different angle. The pic below is a close up of this rock:

Shortly after, I saw this rock…the layers very clear:

They are amazing. Thousands of years old. Must have incredible energy.

Imagine, the top one was laid down after the earth had tilted so much! And with the same type of soil too. It is incredible that it was so mobile. I love looking at rocks – now that’s real antiquity – esp here in Africa

Well, I’m told, they are very old and we have rather a large selection here too! Also everything in Africa is bigger and better!
