angular non-conformity on fin near Devils Garden trailhead

Arches National Park (Utah USA). Near the trailhead of Devils Garden Trail in late July 2013. The middle fin has an angular unconformity. The strata that angle downward are older layers from before the rock tilted by 30 deg. The left part broke off and then new layers were deposited that are the horizontal strata on top. This image is 28% size of the original.
