What a range of colours from blueish to red! There must be different minerals, I guess. Lovely photo, Ryan!
Best greetings, May
Like May, I was struck by the blue/red division down the middle. Great shot.
Thank you and greetings, May, Chris, and Nicolas. It's quite a beautiful place, and well worth the walk.
It is a great pleasure to look at these wonderful shots!
Thanks, Barbara from Connecticut
The colour of the rocks is really incredible! Do you know what makes them such different shades?
Thank you Barbara and Jessica. I know that most of Zion is sandstone, but many different colors of sandstone. Sandstone is just compressed sand, so the colors must come from the color of the original sand.
Nice, Ryan. Good to see you out and about.
Thanks, Dann. These days it's especially nice to find a few minutes to just veg out for no reason.
Hope all is going well for you. Do I recall you finishing up school?
