Sandstone Wind Erosion

Friends, Sandstone comes in many hues from white to a deep gold color in the Wind Canyon area of the southern Little Missouri Badlands.  Wind Canyon is a class room for wind erosion effects on soft sandstone.  The wind carves caves, caverns and figures in the soft stone.  Many have carved their initials in the rock, only to return a short time later to find them washed away with the sand.  The bottom image is another wind-eroded area of Wind Canyon showing pencil tips figures. til Tomorrow MJ
