Sandstone on the Trail (or ... the Trail on Sandstone?) in Virginia

Virginia Tech assistant professor of geoscience writes in a 13 January 2012 Wired web post about an A.T. photo under the headline "Friday Field Photo #165: Sandstone Along the Appalachian Trail".

He has a nice photo of "the Tuscarora Formation on display along the Appalachian Trail near Roanoke, Virginia." Most of us walk these rocks and don't know much about them (except how sharp the ones in Pennsylvania seem).
