Favorite thing: The lowest layer in this sea was Dakota Formation, followed by Tropic Shale with dark grey clay muds. More and more sea sediments were deposited to result in the marine sandstones of Straight Cliff Formation. Then, water was drained away, and rivers dropped their sands, gravels and shales - Wahweap and Kaiparowits formation have been built.
Finally, Wasatch limestone was deposited, which is Bryce Canyons most prominent rock formation.
This was the time when “Lake Flagstaff” captured the basin which is now seen again east of Bryce Canyon.
