Beautiful Rock Formations!

Beautiful Rock Formations of Colorado Plateau!

Ute Peak or Sleeping Ute Mountain, Cretaceous Rock Formation - formed by intrusion of igneous rocks at about 72 million years. (on our way to Cortez, Colorado)

 arches type rock formation.. on our way to a uranium mining company.

 Not sure where this is. Lol! But I see Moenkopi and Chinle Formations... mmmm, I think! Lol!

 Paradox Basin, if I remember right!

 
 The Grand Canyon (North Rim) in Arizona.

 Picturesque view of the Glen Canyon Dam.

 The beautiful Capitol Reef in Utah.

Mmmm weird rock formation... Lol! It is actually one of the 67 sedimentary pipes in Kodachrome Basin National Park in Utah where we camped.

 Amazing scenic views from once an ocean a long long time ago!

  2. The rock formations are nice. I also saw rock formations in Yehliu, Taiwan which includes one that is shape like a queen's head but none of this would rival the rock formation in your post.

  5. I can't believe that this place was once an ocean, weird, but possible. This is actually one of the places that I want to see in the near future.

  6. Those are so grandeur and picturesque! I've only started appreciating such rock formations when I visited one recently. If you have time, you can check out a photo of me on top of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte's famous Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. It was certainly breathtaking just like those that you've posted! :)
