Lithoclastic limestone near base of conglomerate and limestone unit

The contact between the varicolored claystone and the conglomerate
and limestone unit is just above the broom handle. The Mulberry Member
does not seem to be present here, although greenish gray claystone at
the far right might be in the Mulberry. The conglomeratic interval contains
clasts of limestone (arrows), as well as lenses of lithoclastic limestone
that formed in place (in situ). Lithoclasts in the limestone lenses include
both claystone and limestone pebbles. The outlined area of lithoclastic
limestone is shown in the close-up.
