Stripes of Life From Halfway Back in Time

Algae life that is. Bedded 2 billion year old sedimentary rocks, say 5 metres wide at base of photo. Rollercoastering up into the sky just outside Sanikiluaq, Nunavut. View is looking due north. Younging direction or upwards for these vertically-dipping carbonate strata is to the left. There are mega-miles of textured rocks polished by glaciation in the Belcher Islands for the macro inclined.

Smoothing of all outcrop around here is due to continental glaciation.
