Geology of the National Parks in Pictures - Walnut Canyon

The next up on my tour of the National Parks in pictures:

View of the cliff dwelling from the entrance. They are made where the softer shales have eroded away.

You can see the bedding of the sandstone and shale a little better from this angle.

View over the valley.

Walking along the remains of the cliff dwellings.

View inside one of the houses.

A more complete wall on the other side of the meander.

And the walk back up begins.

View of some nice cross bedding from the entrance.

View down one of the meanders of the river. The cliff dwellings are on the meander to the right.

You can see the rest of the National Park Pictures at my website.
