The geology of the Great Plains is a product of long periods of sedimentary buildup followed by equally long periods of erosion. The result today is a dramatic landscape of bluffs, pinnacles and badlands that contain the rich story, of ancient sea creatures, dinosaurs and long extinct, giant land mammals. The Agate Fossil Beds is a landscape that reflects many influences from early animals roaming the valleys and hills to tribal nations they call the High Plains home. Explorers passing through or settling the American West also have a part in the story.
