Ireland Sandstone Ripple Marks

Recommended Posts

We found this yesterday outside of Sedan Kansas on a 4-H Geology field trip. It was with a thinner layer of sandstone just below a thick layer of Ireland sandstone. 

 

One of the leaders thought it was ripple marks. I also thought it looked like ripple marks but wanted a second opinion. 

 

We would hope to be able to display this in her geology exhibit as a fossil if it is truly ripple marks.

This doesn't look regular enough for me to call it ripple marks, but, it may be some other type of sedimentary structure.  :headscratch:
