Description

Stratified concretions glow in soft midday light, a rare occurrence. The various colors are due to the sedimentary deposits of sand, silt, mud and volcanic ash. The carved walls were sculpted by the fast moving Little Missouri River. Slicing easily through the soft sedimentary rocks, the river and its tributaries generated the fantastically broken topography that is today’s badlands.
