This very fine example of quartzite is part of the Deep Springs Formation that was deposited in the late Precambrian - Early Cambrian. Estimates of the formations age range from 600 Ma to 650 Ma. The deposition marks the western extent of the strata that accumulated in a passive or rifted margin. Further west where younger rocks are exposed, trilobites can be collected. Excellent foto, I like how you framed it location above the valley and steepness of the area. Like Best wishes, Michael

Thanks for all the geological information, Michael. I'd love to go back there for another visit sometime. I have since moved to Montana, so it's not real easy to get there now.

Greetings from Polson, Montana .... Richard
