Wow. Look at this beautiful landscape. I wonder how this got to be. I am in luck! Weathering, erosion, and deposition are responsible.
Weathering is the breaking down of rock by weather elements. These rocks were once part of one large rocks. They are broken down into smaller pieces now because of weathering.
Erosion is being demonstrated here. Water is crashing against the shore and picking up sand. It is then relocating and moving the sand into a new place.
Near the curves of the river deposition occurs. Deposition is the dumping the load of sediment hen movement slows. When the water and sediment come around a curve, they build up speed and settle on the inside. This creates a meander.
