Best road cut ever? Quite possibly. Fall out from several episodes of activity at Chimborazo volcano. Zoomed out version below:

Yeah it's pretty cool. Actually they are air-fall deposits from a couple of volcanic eruptions when Chimborazo used to be active many moons ago. The change in angle halfway up comes from erosion during the interim period. Think I'll put up the zoomed out version too.

Thank you. I wonder how many other visitors to Chimborazo pay attention to these kinds of formations....?
