Mountains erode over time. Just as the ancient mountains to the east eroded to produce
sediment in the sea that was then to their west, so the newer mountains to the west eroded.
They produced sediments that flowed into the inland sea to the east. These sediments
buried the giant clams, the ammonites, and the mosasaurs whose fossils are found from
New Mexico to Kansas to Alberta.
