A Very Low UV Day

Padilla Bay with steam from one of the March Point refineries
 and east summit of Guemes Island on the right  

Field work today was like being in a black and white movie. Shades of gray of various intensity nearly everywhere. I suspect there was no vitamin D production in northwest Washington with multiple layers of cloud. I had pickled feet as well. I go back out tomorrow to look at an alluvial fan.

A small scale alluvial fan but the concept is the same.
Note lumpy debris lobes and steeper gradient on the upper fan, smoother debris flood lobes expanding the fan foot print across the gravel and multiple abandoned channels incised into fan surface.
