Titus Canyon
This view is looking down the wash bottom canyon in upper Titus Canyon. In general, the sedimentary units grow progressively younger as one proceeds down the canyon, although faults offset the rocks in many locations. The rocks are steeply dipping to overturned, and reflect a great deal of geologic changes over the more-than-half billion years since they were originally deposited in shallow seas far away from their current location. Rocks in the Death Valley region have experienced many mountain-building episodes over their long geologic history.
