Detailed Description

Hole-In-The-Wall is a gap in a ridge of near-vertically dipping conglomerate of the Tertiary Furnace Creek Formation. Tectonic forces shaping the Death Valley region have tilted beds of conglomerate (originally formed as alluvial fan deposits) on their sides (Wright and others, 1999). The modern stream channel passes through the gap at Hole-In-The Wall. All the streams in this image drain into Furnace Creek Wash. Scale (1:48,000); north is to the left.
