Description

Ridges as a Bridge Between the Prairie and River. In the black-and-white photo, a large outcrop runs the full length of the photo. Ridges of the outcrop slope from the prairie in the background to the river in the foreground. The prairie is quite bare. Trees and shrubberies are visible in the distance. The river exists at the base of the huge outcrops. Some shrubbery and many rugged walls slope down to the river basin. The horizontal stratification of the outcrop is clearly presented in the photo.
