The Green River, a main tributary to the mighty Colorado River, can ben seen snaking through the plateau, continuing to carve this extraordinary landscape we see before us.
It was perhaps the most alien looking landscape I had ever seen. One of the park rangers explained to us that, we can see millions of years of geological history, in this single National Park.
The distinct layers you see in the rocky plateau signify various time periods in Earth’s geological history. And by exploring the layers in order, it essentially enables us to travel through time!
