Picture Notes: On 10/01/2015, I made a trip with my friend Blake Smith to hike the Deer Creek Picnic Spring trail off NV-158 (Deer Creek Rd) near the steep flanks of Mummy Mountain in the Mount Charleston Wilderness Area. While hiking along Cougar Ridge Trail road at 3,520 feet elevation, we found a large boulder under a large tree on the side of the road (Fig. 01). Close inspection revealed that it was full of seabed fossils (Figs. 02 & 03). The last time I had a find like this was hiking around top of Mount Potosi … Mount Potosi Fossils.
