Scrammy Gorge Previous photograph Thumbnails Next photograph
At Scrammy Gorge the rock profile of the mesa is exposed. The band of hard cap rock protecting softer underlying rock from erosion can be clearly seen. Wherever the cap rock is removed, by whatever means, the underlying rock is soon eroded. If the underlying rock is removed, as has happened at Scrammy Gorge, the overlying rock soon cracks and falls.
