A mid morning walk today which is where I snapped the photos in the previous post.
You are viewing an ancient sea floor that once was a shallow sea that covered the Las Vegas Valley and our Great Basin. I took a quick walk mid morning today and tried a different path which took me down into a very large wash. The wash has been chewing away at this wall of ancient sea floor for a very long time obviously, gradually exposing the many layers of sedimentation. photos were taken with the iPhone7 then I tried to clean them up a bit on the Mac. Geologically, Las Vegas is a geologic wonder! Click a photo for a look..
