What rock layer occurs at the top of Isis Temple that protects the
weaker layer underneath, and what landform feature separates Isis Temple from the rest of the Grand Canyon?
Your choices are:
1.Temples are pieces of the plateau that have broken loose from the plateau itself. Since the Kaibab limestone is the resistant rock formation that makes up the plateau (and edge) surrounding the Grand Canyon, it is this layer of rock that forms the top of Isis Temple. Isis Temple itself is a giant block that separated from the north rim due to a giant landslide, and features of the landslide compose its border.

2. Hermit Shale makes a protective summit of Isis Temple, while narrow ridges that are eroding by rock fall separate Isis from the rest of the Grand Canyon.

3.Coconino Sandstone makes a protective summit of Isis Temple, while creeks (drainages) separate Isis from the rest of the Grand Canyon.
4. Hermit Shale makes a protective summit of Isis Temple, while creeks (drainages) separate Isis from the rest of the Grand Canyon.
