Similar to many caves, Wookey Hole on the southern escarpment of the Mendip Hills is a solutional cave. Formed through the chemical weathering (disolution) of carbonate rocks through natually acidic (carbonic) meteoric (ground) waters. The cave is perhaps unique in that it is formed within both Triassic and Carboniferous strata (therefore cutting an unconformable boundary). Large parts of the cave are formed in the Clifton Down Limestone of Carboniferous age which dips at 35° to 45° South. The limestone is overlain by much younger Triassic Dolomitic Sandy Conglomerate (the Permian is missing!). The breccia hosts the first part of the Wookey Cave system; a reddish-brown dolomitic limestone cemented by terrigenous sandy scree deposits. The conglomerate is mostly horizontal and so marks out an angular unconformity at its base with the dipping Carboniferous.

I remember when people use to make fun of my crazy, curly hair;
Now those same people wanna compare & say it's not fair;
Wishing and wondering how they can get this hair - Askin' questions about my hair care 🤷🏽♀️ This is the same wash & go from a few days ago; I think this is day 3 or 4 now 🤔 -----------------------------------------------------
