Figure 6. An example of folding in the layered rocks of the Perry Mountain Formation. Looking straight down on a rock surface, this image shows a V-shaped fold in the layers, open to the right side. This is a symmetrical-style fold in which the two sides of the fold are mirror images. Such features are common throughout the area and attest to the great forces that acted upon these rocks over the eons.
