3, UC, Surprise Canyon Formation), karst valleys and sinkholes formed near the top of the Redwall Limestone as the Redwall became exposed to a long period of erosion and karstification--a scenario that begs the question: "How could these karst features have formed in soft sediment in one year's time in the middle of a flood?" Modern caves have developed along this same Mississippian-age (330 million years ago) paleokarst horizon in the Mooney Falls Member because groundwater readily dissolves caves as it moves more freely along this permeable horizon (Fig.

Geology and Speleology were yet to develop as sciences, yet Lewis & Clark made significant observations of karst, pseudokarst, and paleokarst features.
However, for at least the last 30 years, those breccias have also been recognized as post-depositional paleokarst features that occur on a regional scale and likely also cut formational boundaries.
