Striped Butte

Striped Butte in Butte Valley Death Valley National Park
The twisted butte rises out of Butte Valley to a height of 4,744 feet above sea level and only about 700 above the valley floor. Steeply tilted limestone beds of the Permian Anvil Spring Formation. A major fault behind the butte separates it from Precambrian Noonday and Johnnie Formation rocks, about 1/2-billion years older.
