Heading Southwestward Through Mazourka Canyon, California

A directional perspective roughly southwestward through Mazourka Canyon, Inyo county, California. Rocks on both sides of road belong to the upper Mississippian Rest Spring Shale, which yields localized accumulations of brachiopods, pelecypods, gastropods and ammonoids (an extinct variety of cephalopod distantly related to the modern chambered nautilus). Eastern face of the Sierra Nevada along skyline. Photograph taken by an individual who goes by the cyber-name "noondueler"; I cropped and processed it through photoshop.
