Titus Canyon

Titus Canyon

Detailed Description


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, reflecting geologic events during the more-than-half billion years since they were originally deposited in shallow seas. Rocks in the Death Valley region have experienced many mountain-building episodes over their long geologic history.
