A series of long-studied exposures of glacial sediments is found immediately west of the city of Atchison, Atchison County, Kansas, along the south side of White Clay Creek in Sec. 2, 10, 1l, T.6S., R.20E. (Fig. 1). The stream cuts are readily accessible by foot from U.S. 59, which parallels the north side of White Clay Creek. It is advisable to ask local residents for permission to cross private property to reach the stream cuts.
