bayshcp1.jpg (116871 bytes) At the base of the detached block is a small outcrop of Maquoketa Formation and a very thin (5 cm) band of red Neda Formation
baysh86f.jpg (114360 bytes) Trails run along the base of the escarpment.
baysh87f.jpg (147713 bytes) A view from east of the supervisor's quarters, showing a detached block.

This panorama is taken from the parking area at the base of the bluffs. Outcrops of the Maquoketa Formation are not found along the shoreline, apparently because they have been mantled by debris sliding down from above.
