Thrombolites of the Great Salt Lake, Utah

Posted by Callan Bentley

I saw mention of thrombolites exposed along the shore of Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake the other day in my Facebook feed; because the description cited a professor at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, I prompted my friend and colleague Tiffany Rivera, also a geology professor at Westminster, to go check it out and get me some bloggable photos. As it turned out, she already had – and was there on the day the Facebook post photos were taken. But she was willing to share some images anyhow. These shots are hers…





Thanks for sharing, Tiffany!
