Scorched Earth Photo… on June 5, 2013

Wonderful and scenic shot , and some interesting geology you have captured here Greg - is that volcanic rock on top of limestone layers ?

Hey Waldo, I'm no geologist but it looks like 6 or 7 different volcanic flows across the area. Most of the rock in the layers looks like it has a vertical pattern to it. We have some similar layers near Boise of columnar basalt (as my 9 grade earth science teacher taught us). It looks like there were some very specific time periods between the flows. Great scenery in any case, Best Wishes, Greg.

Hi Veranik, spring is the best time here for a big water flow. The falls is about 67m (200ft) and the view area is another 45m (150ft) above that, it makes for a very deep canyon. Thanks for the visit, Greg.

Hello Lizab and Els, it is a great place. I have been near hear a number of times and finally took the extra couple of hours to visit in person. It is a unique area of deserts and river canyons like this. Best Wishes, Greg.
