Moab fault outcrop near Arches National Park Visitor Center. The Moab fault is a complex normal fault zone resulting from salt tectonics in the valley below. This is an excellent example of fault zone cataclasis, as well as the formation of slickensides that indicate fault slip direction. Photo ID 700
