The Mesas of the Wadi Rum and Wadi Dana were formed where the fault lines intersected with each other. These beautiful mesas are usually made out of white sandstone. The beautiful gorges were created when the natural forces of wind, rain, and sun came together. Mesas or tables were made. Valleys became wider and Mesas larger.
