Textures from a Tufa Dome II

Here's one more quick photo in this short-lived (and widely spaced!) series showing some textures found around a tufa dome near Trinity, NV, which is described more fully here. These are fan-shaped plates, probably originally composed of thinolitic tufa, possibly now calcium-carbonate cemented as in this photo from Pyramid Lake (page-up slightly to see the photo).
