Merry-Go-Round Rock

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 24 June 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The Merry-Go-Round Rock as seen from Schnebly Hill Road in Sedona, Arizona. The rock formation is created from ancient Fort Apache limestone. The limestone is the sedimentary remnants of an ancient inland sea. It is considerably more erosion-resistant than the surrounding rock layers and thus forms the capstone of many Sedona geologic formations.
