Despite the quality of the exposure, however, the outcrops of glaciogenic strata are fragmentary, forming isolated, laterally offset outcrop belts at the western extremity of the Basin and Range province. Excellent evidence for glacially modulated sedimentation includes (1) ice-rafted dropstones in most ranges, (2) thick diamictites bearing a variety of exotic (extrabasinal) clasts, (3) striated clasts and (4) local occurrences of glacitectonic deformation structures at the basin margins.
