Sign Board
This scene models the terrain found along US 412 west of Orienta, Major County, Oklahoma, near the ATSF line. Called the Glass Mountains, these red earth buttes with cap-rock rims of gypsum and sparkling selenite crystals rise 80 scale feet from the basin floor. They are part of the Blaine Escarpment, a large gypsum formation extending across much of western Oklahoma along the Cimarron River. The side of one of the buttes is cut out for a western Oklahoma oil well location. The red earth used on the modules is real Oklahoma red soil collected from an oil well location near Woodward, Oklahoma.
Description & History
The flat area in the center of the module is a drilling well location.
