This only 40 million years old sandstone formation is located on the northeastern edge of the Colorado Plateau at the geological young end of Grand Staircase of Utah. The rock is very soft and consequently vulnerable to weathering. The combination of summertime thunderstorm precipitation and wind erosion has created an unique landscape of forms that offer unequaled opportunities. For few moments the setting sun is engulfing this usually grey colored formation in a deep orange color.
