Cameron Falls cascade over ancient dolomite rocks. These rocks are made up of sediments which were deposited here over 1,500 million years ago when only the simplist forms of life existed such as bacteria and algae.
It's hard to believe that these rocks are so ancient and were formed before development of life on earth. Although the red portion of the rocks are argillite, the beige, grey and brown are usually limestone or dolomite. Cameron Falls are found right in the town of Waterton in the province of Alberta, Canada and are one of the easiest sites to access to view these ancient rocks.
