Grand Canyon
The Little Colorado River Gorge is carved into the Marble Platform. The platform is an incised plateau capped by the Kaibab Limestone of Permian age. In the distance is a low mesa on the Marble Platform where a remnant of the Moenkopi Formation (consisting of sandstone, shale and mudstone of Early Triassic age) crops out above Kaibab Limestone.
