Fossillized-Sand-Dunes

Description: A very interesting geological formation, clearly showing fossilized sand dunes in alternating bands of colour.

Nature Notes: There are two sites. Both are nearer to Martin Head than to Telegraph Brook. These outcrops of Triassic sedimentary rocks from the Fundy Group are similar to those found in St. Martins and Red Head and are over 200 million years of age.
