Kansas Little Pyramids

Like the better known Chalk Pyramids (or Monument Rocks) the Little Pyramids are rock outcroppings beside K-95 near US-83 in western Kansas. The 30 feet tall sedimentary formations of Niobrara Chalk were created during the Cretaceous Period, the most recent portion of the Mesozoic era, 80 million years ago when this area was part of a vast inland sea. Fossil shark teeth may be found in the area.

For those of you with GPS the Little Chalk Pyramids are located at  Latitude: 38.75682, Longitude: -100.94952. 19 miles north of Scott City, Kansas.

While you are at the Little Pyramids, stop at the nearby Keystone Gallery.
