Mt. Nebo is a kame, a depositional feature composed of sand and gravel, formed when Wadena-lobe ice covered the area. The kame is about 125 feet higher than the surrounding landscape, forming a prominent feature in northwestern Todd County.

The movie pans northeast to southwest across Mt. Nebo and the surrounding topography. A gravel pit in the side of Mt. Nebo is just visible. To the right of Mt. Nebo, and southwest, the hilly topography is the northern extent of the drumlin seen on the DEM.
