Day 23: Green Point Geological Site

Day 23: Green Point Geological Site

Green Point Geological Site

Green Point geological site is the place where the boundaries between the Cambrian and Ordovician eras can be plainly seen and studied. These fascinating layers in the rocks, originally laid down horizontally, were thrust up vertically and exposed by plate tectonics. They say that this place and its discoverer is as important to geology as Einstein and his energy equation are for physics.

The rocks were layered like a good pastry, with may different types interspersed between. It was truly curious, and it is amazing what it all proves in the life and history of our planet.

For my part as a “texture queen” I loved the visual variegation, the different colors, textures, and compositions on offer here.


I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
