Cover: "The mighty rampart of huge rocks is one of many on Abydos Station in the Port Hedland hinterland. Millions of years ago a gigantic upsurge of the land mass occurred and this was followed by countless centuries of subsistence and erosion. These masses of ferruginous shale represent the less erodible portions of what were originally extensive rock formations."
