A spectacular outcrop of folded limestones was exposed by highway construction in 2003 on the west side of Bennington, southwestern Vermont, USA.  This is the Whipstock Hill roadcut (aka the Bennington Bypass roadcut) as it looked in September 2006.  The rocks here are part of the Bascom Formation (Lower Ordovician).
