significant landslides have also been recongnized near Colorado City,
AZ. The formations comprising the escarpment are the same as those
at the Vermilion Cliffs near House Rock and Marble Canyon. There
are not nearly as many slides at this location because the Chine Shale
is not exposed. The cliffs north of Colorado City are called Caanan
Mountain by some.
