Caption: Badland erosion, in Death Valley, California, USA. The erosive pattern seen here is typical for deposits of shale, rhyolite or other soft sediments in arid regions, where rain only comes in occasional torrential downpours. The rain erodes the gullies seen here, leaving a ridged and undulating landscape.
