Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, Nye County, Nevada

A Google Earth street car perspective--snapped in September, 2015--that I edited and processed through photoshop. It's a look eastward to the Visitors Quarry at Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Monument, Nye County Nevada, a view that includes: The parking lot; the western side of the A-frame structure that houses the world-famous ichthyosaur bone bed, where lie nine of the great marine reptiles--each exceeding 37 feet in length (one measures almost 60 feet long); and the famous bas-relief model of the 57 foot-long state fossil of Nevada, the ichthyosaur Shonisaurus popularis, one of the largest ichthyosaurs ever discovered.
