Fossil Mountain
Fossil Mt. in the south end of the Confusion Range in western Millard Co. Utah. The ledge at the bottom of the Photo is where the Endocerids are. It is about 10 meters above the base of the Ordovician Juab Limestone, Oj. The Kanosh Shale, Ok, and Lehman Formation, Ol, also contain abundant fossil cephalopods, as well as many other fossil invertebrates. The Watson Ranch Quartzite, Ow, and Crystal Peak Dolomite, Oc, are above, and the mountain is capped with a sliver of the Eureka Quartzite. This area is in the King Top wilderness study area.
