More About this Minecraft Model
The bedrock in this area is comprised of flat-lying Bear Paw, Dinosaur Park, Oldman, Foremost, and Lea Park formations deposited during the Cretaceous period. These rocks were eroded over millions of years by wind, water, and glacial processes leaving them exposed in the badlands of the Red Deer River Valley.
