Get to the Point of Rocks

Here’s a photo of a great outcrop near Devil’s Lake from a Google+ post. You can clearly see the  ripple marks that flowing water left in the sand, long before the sediment was lithified and later metamorphosed. A professor at the UW recently got this outcrop historic landmark status, which will save it from becoming a casualty of road construction.
