Where you see a lot of bare bedrock at the surface,
this means that the rate of
is faster than the rate of rock
of the landscape is crafted by this inequality
between rock decay and erosion.

What would G.K. Gilbert call the area of
reddish material without vegetation seen in this view
spin the view around and look at the landscape created by this fundamental inequality in processes that
decay rock and processes that erode rock. Think about why the reddish material is so exposed.
Hint: people can alter the balance between weathering (rock decay) and
transportation (erosion). Removal of vegetation by mining, roads, agriculture and other factors can
change this balance.
