Rocks have been on the move for millions of years, it describes all the variable crustal process by which rock is formed, modified, transformed, broken down, and reformed. The theory of the rock cycle was created by James Hutton, he is from Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Werner’s theory was embraced by most of the scientific community because it seemed to explain all the rocks formations found around the world, but in the 18th century is when James Hutton was only beginning to be recognized for the theory of plutonism. His theory states that rocks were formed from the process driven by heat contained by the earth’s interior. Hutton realized that rocks could be eroded,
The average rainfall is 14.5 inches. The population according to the 1990 cencus is 453,588. Wyoming is also know as Big Wyoming, the Equalty State, and the Cowboy State. The state motto for Wyoming is Equal Rights. The Wyoming flag was designed by Mrs. A.C. Keyes.
All of these things are very destructive, but none like volcanoes. A volcano is a mountain or hill that has a crater through which lava, rock fragments, hot vapor, and gas are being or have been erupted from the earth's crust, as stated by Webster’s dictionary. They are formed when magma within the Earth's upper mantle works its way to the crust. This accumulates and forms a magma chamber. Over time this grows larger and a volcano is created.

That being said, the scientific theories do vary on a variety of points. One suggests that Devil’s Tower might be an old, deformed igneous rock that took shape as magma hardened above a magma feeder pipe, causing it to bulge. Another theory states that Devil’s Tower could be all that’s left of the plumbing system of an ancient volcano. However, very little evidence has been found thus far to support this theory. Finally, the simplest scientific theory is that the tower is actually the shaft of a volcano that never reached the Earth’s surface.
