Day 283:evidence of a bushfire

The erosion of the dune reveals moments in time that were previously hidden from view. I love looking at the collection of materials that are compacted in each layer…..this dark layer ran the entire length of the dune.  P1050908doc

The dark strata is evidence of a bush fire…given that it runs the entire length of the dune rather than a localised area (which would be a fire pit)…..hence lining the sticks back up as little trees which were once the source of the fire.
