Monday Geology Picture: Sandstone Cross-bedding in Red Rock Canyon
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
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 can see some very impressive sandstone cross-bedding, such as the bedding shown in the picture above.
Been there. GigaPanned that: http://www.gigapan.com/gigapans/68796
Nice post.. I love these kind of red stone rocks basically gifts of nature.
