Trees on Cross Bedding

The winding road through the east side of Zion National Park cuts through multiple spectacular sandstone domes. These hills appear small from a distance until you see the trees growing on their flanks; the cross bedding is at least 5-10 meters high, with each curved,petrified deposit standing taller than the trees growing on the hillside. On a clear day (such as in the panorama, below), the red and white sandstone stands out in stark contrast against the deep blue sky behind.
