It really is hard to believe that a canyon could have formed from this desolate land.
The river erosion is starting to take shape, it is breaking down the sand.
You might not know it, but this canyon was most likely formed from river erosion. It started as a desolate and rural area, but it transformed into a big canyon.
The mounds are beginning to form, yet another stage complete towards a canyon.
As you can see, the river erosion is getting wider, causing the sand to erode away.
First of all, about 1,000,000 years ago, there was a very desolate area, there was no life. This was the very start of the canyon.
Wow, it is really hard to believe that this canyon has gone through a lot of river erosion, I wonder what it will look like at present day?
As you can see, the mounds have now changed over time into rock.
Now then, about 500,000 years ago, the water or river erosion started to break down the land and started to create mounds of sand.
I hope you guys learned something, here is a quick summary, the canyon started as a desolate land, it went through river erosion and it ended up forming the canyon.
After that, about 450,000 years ago, The river erosion has gotten even bigger than it was before. Also, the mounds are starting to take their place.
Almost there, at about 1,000 years ago, the mounds have turned themselves into rocks. Now our canyon is almost complete.
Well you see Adam, the canyon stopped forming from that last slide but know, people just like you can visit it anytime, so the next time you see a canyon, think about how it was formed and what it looks like now.
