That juicy shock vein looks like a icing in a lemon layer cake! An ancient fall (before Gold Basin, perhaps as much as 4x-5x older) in spectacular condition that teases everyone with a history scientists simply can't pin down! Wish more work were done on this one, great material. Great documentation, early recognition of anomalous characteristics and study of this fall by the finders, too.
