Killer shot of Lipless Diplodocus

I recently ran across this nice rock closeup in a 1957 episode of "Have Gun Will Travel," titled "Strange Vendetta." This is easily the best view I've seen of the rock I've been calling Diplodocus from the period after its top "lip" disappeared. I did a detailed post not too long ago about Diplodocus with and without its lip — including the opposite side of the rock, Grumpy. (I named them before I knew they were the same rock, which is a pretty common occurrence.) Check out that earlier post here for more details about Diplodocus and Grumpy. As I mentioned in the earlier post, the top "lip" of Diplodocus probably went away around 1952. The rock was located on the South Rim of the Upper Iverson, and I've never been able to determine whether it still exists — which is usually an indication that it's gone. But you never know, and I'm still searching for it.
