(Area of Critical Environmental Concern)The limestone feature (outcrop), located across the road, known as the Madison Limestone Formation, was deposited about 350 million years ago in a shallow sea. It was uplifted about 65 million years ago during the Laramide Orogeny (when the Rocky Mountains were formed.) During its uplift the cliffs were folded and faulted, adding to the geologic structure of the cliffs.
