|A spectacular contact between Keeweenawan volcanic rocks and interflow
sediments is exposed in a road cut just southwest of Grand Marais, Minnesota.
In addition to the contact itself, there are two spectacular squeezeups of sediment (apparently still soft when the flows were erupted.
|Left and below: the upper (western) squeezeup|
|Left and below: the lower (eastern) squeezeup. In both cases, the directions of folding and thrusting suggest flow from northeast to southwest.|
