At Rainy Cove and elsewhere on the Noel Shore, tightly-folded Mississippian sandstones and mudstones (above) are overlain by almost flat-lying red Triassic sandstones beds and conglomerates ("pebble-rocks"). The boundary (below) between the Mississippian and Triassic rocks, known as an unconformity, represents over 100 million years of "deep" time. Photos by Rob Fensome.
