The sedimentary rocks called Paleozoic are seen in the Backbone Ridge which is a down-dropped block of younger rocks along the side of two faults. Abiotic Factors

Brazilian freetail bat Llano Uplift Llano Uplift Hickory Sandstonethe rock is made up of parts of sand that have been eroded from other rocks.
Honeycutt Formationdeposition of calcium carbonate shell material. Reef deposits are very simular to limestone An example of deposition is The Bear Creek river. The river empties out at Llano uplift. This place has rough fast water so that means the rocks are going to be smooth. 2007 1935 Natural Catastrophic Event. A Flood
that brought 20-24 in. Another Flood
that brought
9.21-9.71 in. The April
showers
rained a large amount of water. Rained five
days straight.
The Isolated
Thunderstorms
continued through
out those days. As seen in the
picture the rain
was very severe
so the plants
might of been
washed out
or a few stayed. A small old bridge fell
in this flood
so that means
that many river
creatures were either
harmed or
separated from
another fish, specie, etc. *Top is 1935
