• GRAND CANYON

    Seen from Desert Tower, the Great Unconformity is the boundary between the flat-lying Tapeats sandstone (and overlying Paleozoic rocks) and tilted rocks of the Grand Canyon Supergroup (GCS). The Great Unconformity here, marked in red, cleanly cuts off the tops of the tilted GCS rocks, which were deposited between ~1,200 and ~800 million years ago.
