Gold Point Panorama

Esmeralda County, Nevada

A panorama across the community of Gold Point, Nevada--in the vicinity of which occurs the Gold Point fossil locality in the lower Cambrian Harkless Formation, which yields beaucoup trilobites, archaeocyathids (extinct calcareous sponge), salterella (extinct ice cream cone to tusk-shaped invertebrate animal placed into its own unique phylum, called Agmata), brachiopods, algal remains, and many varieties of annelid and arthropod tracks and trails. A screen shot capture from a video uploaded to YouTube by an individual who goes by the name of R. Holt that I edited and processed through photoshop.
