Syndey Sandstone

Back in March and April 2015 my husband and I travelled to Australia for a couple of weeks for vacation. We went to visit some good friends who live in Sydney.

Monday Geology Picture: Cross-Bedding Sandstone Bench, Sydney, Australia

Monday Geology Picture: Sandstone Cross-bedding in Red Rock Canyon

This week’s Monday Geology Picture is a pretty shot that was taken several years ago in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, which is located just outside of Las Vegas. If you ever visit Las Vegas, I highly recommend making a trek out to Red Rocks– it’s a short drive away from the casinos and is a nice escape from the gaudy and glitzy Las Vegas strip. Also, you …
