File Description:
This scenery covers the southern part of Canyonlands National Park (Needles District) in Utah. The colorful layers of sand- and limestone that you can see today built over hundreds of millions years by advancing and retreating oceans as well as rivers that deposited huge amounts of sediment. About 15 million years ago these layers began to rise due to a colliding movement of plates in the earth's crust, forming what is today called the Colorado Plateau. As the land rose higher, erosion accelerated, resulting in countless canyons, mesas and buttes. The uplifting land caused the rivers to carve in even faster, resulting in the deep canyons of the Colorado and Green Rivers. The needles and fins in the Needles District have yet another story: First uplifts and later slides created a system of perpendicular cracks. Then he resulting crosshatched pattern of "joints" widened by erosion until only thin fins and needles of rock remained. The scenery extends my Arches National Park scenery to the south and brings you another 3.500 sq km in 4.7m/pix quality. To explore the scenery depart from Monticello (U43) and head north. YourDonation@Work: Dedicated to Nels, David and Michael. Thanks!
