It looks to me like you can see Quail Rock from White Pass!We've gone over White Pass--btw, here's a gigapan looking west from White Pass--and we've gone across the flats in the east fork of upper Titanothere Canyon. The road has become a fairly normal dirt road, and although it's still a little narrow, there are places to pull over, or pass, if you happen to be traveling faster than someone ahead of you--although by this point on the road, there is plenty to look at, everywhere, all around, so going slow behind someone (back far enough not to eat any of their dust) is an acceptable option. All through this section, until about the unnamed pass between the east and west forks of upper Titanothere Canyon, the age of the rock formations is Cambrian to the south and Tertiary to the north. The unnamed pass is marked by "Gate" and a gate symbol on the USGS topographic map of the area (USGS TNM 2.0 Viewer)--not that I noticed a gate.
