Erosion forms in regions of very dry climates are always of great interest. The characteristic relief outlines are not only preserved much longer than in regions of abundant rainfall, but the types of different cycles or parts of cycles are not merged with one another. In other words, the sequence of events is read at a glance in the one district, while in the second it is made out only partially after long and laborious effort. The Great Basin is the best example in this country.
