No evidence of shock metamorphism anywhere at Upheaval. I just attended a
week-long Geological Society of America Field Forum there. We discussed the
possibilities of it being a crater. The most compelling evidence is the
structural element itself. However, there has not been to date, a single
shocked quartz grain found. Nor any impact breccias. You decide. If the
glove fits....
