No, I'd guess that conditions would be too dry in my yard for it.  I always see it  along streams or in ephemeral snowmelt drainages.

  Whenever I see strata I wonder if a line is 1 year, 10,000 years or a million years?  Guessing it varies? Anyone have information?

The bedding that's exposed in that rock would almost certainly result from deposition on the finer end of the time scale... the months-years sort of range.

Today was the first day for weeks with a little sunshine. But the wind is still blowing hard.

Rhododendron sutchuenense has been in flower for a while and a lot of the flowers have been torn away by the wind.
