The long, dusty road snakes through a windswept prairie where cattle graze and wheat and corn grow. It’s a familiar sight in western Kansas until the road ends and the earth opens, revealing the effects of more than 80 million years of wind and erosion on land that was once a seabed. Sedimentary outcroppings, some towering more than 100 feet, stretch for a mile, resembling ruins from an ancient walled city such as Jerusalem.
