Wabaunsee County, Kansas

Echo Cliffs are sandstone bluffs along Mission Creek in eastern Wabaunsee County. The sandstone, known informally as the Indian Cave sandstone, was deposited in a river channel cut in the landscape during the Late Pennsylvanian Period, about 300 million years ago. Echo Cliffs is a local park, about two miles southwest of Dover (from The Geologic Record, vol. 2.3).
