Phantom Ranch Tour - O'Neill Butte

Detailed Description

View of O'Neill Butte from the Cedar Ridge. Thick red beds of the Esplanade Sandstone form the massive top of O'Neill Butte. In the foreground, note how the roots of this old Juniper tree help hold the soil in place. The soil is forming from the weathering of the Hermit Shale.
