The Shinarump Member (Chinle Formation) Near Many Farms Arizona

The are some pretty spectacular exposures of the base of the Chinle Formation in the Chinle Valley in Northeastern Arizona.  Jeff Martz, our friend Steve Clarke, and I spent the day yesterday exploring these outcrops and as Jeff often puts it "figuring shit out".  Here are a few photos from yesterdays work:
