Over 40 million years of history in rock

This part of the Badlands show many of the rock layers that allow to reconstruct the history of the area. The oldest layers include the yellow mounds (remnants of ocean mud) of 67 million years ago, while the most recent Sharps formation dates from 28 to 30 million years ago.
