Cape Enrage is one of the many spectacular stop-off points as you travel along the north shore of the Bay of Fundy on the east coast of Canada. The cliffs are composed of thick and thin layers of sandstones, mudstones, and conglomerates that built up along river beds and valleys about 320 million years ago. The ancient river channels can be seen in cross-section in the exposed and weathering strata. The way that the rocks are fracturing and splitting up into their component layers makes many intriguing natural abstract patterns. Plant debris that piled up on the river banks as it was washed downstream in the Carboniferous period has been preserved as fossils.
