Outcrops Of The Lower Ordovician Al Rose Formation

A view westward from the vicinity of Mazourka Canyon to outcrops of the fossiliferous lower Ordovician Al Rose Formation in foreground; eastern front of Sierra Nevada in dramatic backdrop. The Al Rose Formation is one of California's premiere producer of graptolites; the early Paleozoic Era geologic unit also yields excellently preserved brachiopods and trilobites. Photograph taken by an individual who goes by the cyber-name "wayoflife." I cropped and edited it through photoshop.
