Caption: Eroded rock facies in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. These Jurassic limestones have been eroded by water action from the Trummelbach streams, which drain an area of around 24 square kilometres from the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau peaks. The limestones were uplifted and compressed during the Alpine orogeny (mountain building), and are part of the Wildhorn Nappe.
