AAA Editor Notes

Monument Rocks (Chalk Pyramids) are 20 mi. s. on US 83, then 4 mi. e. on a dirt road. Remnants of layer after layer of Cretaceous seabed, the wind-carved, water-eroded chalk pinnacles rise some 70 feet above the plain. This natural formation served as a landmark for pioneers and Native Americans. Weathering has revealed a great variety of marine and reptilian fossils. Chalk bluffs and similar formations are characteristic of the Smoky Hill River Valley from this region east to Cedar Bluff Reservoir. No facilities are available.
Hours: Daily dawn-dusk.
