The Morrison Formation is a distinctive sequence of Upper Jurassic sedimentary rock found in the western United States which has been the most fertile source of dinosaur fossils in North is composed of mudstone, sandstone, siltstone, and limestone and is light gray, greenish gray, or red. Most of the fossils occur in the green siltstone beds and lower Country: United States.

From the oldest to the most recent, they are: Reddish mudstones of the Tidwell Member underlying the whitish sandstones of. The Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation clearly defines the beginning of the dominance of westerly derived coarse-grained detritus onto the Colorado Plateau-Southern Rocky Mountain region.

These rocks are well exposed in the many canyons that occur across this region, most spectacularly in the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona (Figure ).The oldest fossils known from the Colorado Plateau region are stromatolites —layered domes of.
