Here is conglomerate rock on the Rabbit Mountain summit in Boulder County, Colorado. We don't know how old this rock is but the area was a floodplain about 140 million years ago, before the Rocky Mountain uplift began about 70 million years ago.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
