Beyond Panorama Point, the trail makes a tight turn, and continues for another stretch through the Grand Canyon Supergroup strata. You cross the Hakatai Shale and briefly cross into the roughtextured Bass Limestone before reaching the first outcrops of basement rocks. Because of faulting you cross back into Bass Limestone again, at a location where wavy bedding that indicates the presence of stromatolites, or primitive bacterial mats, is obvious.
