The badlands you see from here were so named because they were "badlands" to travel over before modern roads were built. Rain, wind and running water have carved these hills. A thick series of shale and sandstone layers, all of these rocks are a part of the Fort Union Formation ( Paleocene Age). Once part of the High Plains, this area has been deeply eroded. Flash floods which follow every storm are still cutting away the rock layers.
