Stop #3

Our third stop of the day is a convient exposure of conglomerate
filled channels.


A winding drive on back roads brought us to a fantastic overlook to
discuss structure for stop #2 today.

First Outcrop

We have our entire group together now, and with all their luggage, so
it's time to get down to some serious geology! After a quick lunch of
bocadillas in Huete, we are at our first top just outside of town.
Here we are looking at Oligocene sandstones in the Loranca or Huete
Basin. [Apologies now for my terrible Spanish-spellings in this post
and the rest to come!]
