Photographer's Note

In eastern Montana the common rock formations are predominately sandstone. These formations are referred to as rimrocks as they rim many of the valleys. This was taken on a road that goes from Hysham to Hardin, Montana along Sarpy Creek. Much of this vast part of Montana has coal underlying. In fact the coal formation is so extensive in this region it extends into Wyoming and North Dakota. I've been told that this formation contains enough energy to supply all the needs of the United States for 600 years.
