The Middlegate Formation Fossil Plant Locality, Nevada

Stopped in the wash which leads part of the way to the middle Miocene Middlegate Formation fossil plant locality, proper. Preparing to park along right edge of the wash. Now, it's time to hike. Low hills at right distance must be climbed over to locate the best exposures of cream to whitish fossiliferous opaline shales, a representative outcrop of which can be seen just to the right of jeep.
