Badlands Grain Fields in Montana;  photo by William Albert Allard;  "Grainfields spill their color across the badlands of the Missouri Breaks, a lonesome swatch of eastern Montana where the Great Plains roll to an abrupt and wild end. The Missouri River and its tributaries have cut deep paths through underlying sandstone and shale, fracturing the open country."   —From "The Missouri Breaks," May 1999, National Geographic magazine

The “Trovants” (Growing Stones) are stones or sandstone concretions that secrete cement and appear to grow by themselves. They consist of a stone core with an outer shell of sand believed to be the result of cementation that occurred millions of years ago.

DESERT MOUNTAINS    Deep canyons yawn in the Huns Mountains in the south of Namibia. Their layers were formed more than 600 million years ago, and today they are as flat as when they were deposited. The remains of prehistoric animals and plants dye the rock dark grey and brown. The hard limestone shelves erode more slowly than the softer intervening marlstone strata, causing the sides of the valleys to break into terraces.
