Canyons of the Southwest – 5

The next day we left Bryce and drove down to Zion. We pulled off the road right before you enter the long tunnel on the east side. At the location of this image you could see in great detail the depositional patterns in the sandstone rock. This formation was deposited as a series of migrating sand dunes and so you can see numerous unconformities and changing depositional patterns. I like this image and really like the tree in the background to give some scale and perspective to the photo. I also like the rust stained color of the rocks ! Hope you enjoy this image. Much more to come later today !
