Abstract

The short, sharp and narrow ravines that lead into Middle River in Madison County cut through the Kansas City beds. In a nearly vertical wall, the rock is frequently exposed with the brooks running along its base. There are many little waterfalls and some rock-falls or slides caused by the river eroding the shales and undermining the exposure. In the wider ravines, the brooks often change their channels from one side of the ravine to the other.
