Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, Nye County, Nevada

A vintage 1971 photograph, taken by a relative of mine--it's a view eastward in Union Canyon, Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park (then known as Ichthyosaur Paleontologic State Monument), to the distinctive A-frame structure that houses the world-famous ichthyosaur bone bed, where nine of the great marine reptiles, each exceeding 37 feet in length (one measures almost 60 feet long), can be viewed along the floor of a paleontological quarry, similar in scientific conservation style to the late Jurassic-age quarry at Dinosaur National Monument, Utah-Colorado.
