Rainbow Vista #2

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 October 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Rainbow Vista is a lookout over the north part of Valley of Fire. It looks north toward the White Dooms and Duck Rock areas. The colors of the sandstone is more of a range of yellows with an occasional red area. This is in contrast to the rest of the park where the sandstones are entirely or mostly red. In many places the reds, gold and yellows are mixed and blended in, looking like they were stirred quickly.

Sure looks like a geologist's dream out there . . I always admire folks who can 'read' a landscape like that.
