Silty sandy turbidite beds within marine shale of the Jurassic Fernie Formation near Banff, Alberta, Canada. Due to differential weathering, the more resistant turbidite siltstone tend to stick out from the outcrop. The beds are part of an overturned syncline. Depositional scouring marks can be seen on the base of the turbidite units. Top (younger rocks) is towards the right.
