About this image

View to the southwest from Stop 5 in our "Geologic Guide to the Quebradas Back Country Byway" showing reddish Permian rocks (foreground) and cyclic bedding in Madera Group limestones (background). These strata have undergone Tertiary-age folding
and thrust faulting, and the limestones now have a near-vertical orientation.

The Quebradas is east of Socorro, NM.
