Canyon Sin Nombre

Here is a picture of a slot canyon at the Canyon Sin Nombre.  The canyon was formed from occasional flash floods that hit the area from time to time.  The rocks in the area are about one to three million years old.  At that time,  the area covered by freshwater lakes and the rocks that are deposited in the canyon are from the lake.  The rocks show that the area shows that the area received significantly more rain and had a wider range of plants and animals that what exists today.
