Photo 3: Shoreline exposure of Mount Ararat Gneiss (Oma) that shows the characteristic alternating light gray feldspar-rich layers and dark gray hornblende-rich layers. These rocks are interpreted to represent alternating layers of Ordovician-aged volcanic material of differing composition that were subsequently metamorphosed. Shoreline exposure immediately east of where the Little River empties into Casco Bay between Wolf Neck and Flying Point in Freeport.
