The Blue Mesa Member and the overlying Sonsela share many similar lithologies, as do the Blue Mesa and the underlying Mesa Redondo. The overarching distinction is that the Sonsela has more sands, and the Mesa Redonda more red fine sand and mottled strata. At this point it will require cleaned core to make a precise call on these member boundaries.
