The lower sandstone unit of the Upper Cretaceus Eagle Sandstone is extensively exposed in a 300-ft (100-m) high cliff which is dangerously sheer in places and rises above the north edge of Billings, Montana (Fig. 1). An excellent view of the cliffs from a distance can be seen from Rocky Mountain College. The safest and most accessible place to examine the outcrop is in Swords Park, a city park open to the public and accessible by two-wheel drive vehicles.
