A black-and-white photograph of a formation of rock outcrops. The highest of these outcrops is 240 feet high. The highest point of the butte is in the center of the photo. Plant life, such as trees and prairie grass, can be seen on the ridge going to the top of the peak, as well as the ridge on the lower peak to the right. There are three full outcrops shown in the picture. The higher points of the outcrops include newer rocks, while the lower parts of the outcrops include older rocks. These outcrops are also fossil bearing. Sternberg notes that their first specimen was found at the base of this butte.
