The started out looking to have great pillow promise, but by late afternoon the weather was only pleasant for lavas born in water. However, we gigapaned aplenty and picked apart pillows for senior projects. We even found some dualin’ MCJBs (massive column-jointed basalt) arguing about whether they were steeply dipping subaqueous sheets or pillow plumbing systems…use REPLY below to send you vote as to which should win the argument:)

One thought on “Pillows galore

  1. Well done, Team Iceland! (But don’t be fooled by the Dickinsonians, Alex. Wooster is where you belong). As for the MCJBs, I vote for pillow lava plumbing guts.
