Closeup of the dolomitic limestone found at the Goatlick in Glacier National Park, Montana. Dolomitic limestone and the stromatilite fossils composed of it make beautiful gemstones when polished.
The trail where I found this follows the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. The cliffs above the river have large salt deposits which seep out. Extremely steep, only the mountain goats can navigate them and they come here in the summer to acquire the salt that is lacking in their diets.
