View looking south of the "Hanging Gardens" that have formed when waterfalls flowed from the contact at the base of a conglomerate. These ancient cascades with mineral-rich "hard water" have left travertine onyx drapes that contain imprints of fossil vegetation (Lum, et al., 2001).

The roadbed of theTonopah and Tidewater is seen in the middleground.
