Almost looks like somebody had a
fire going too close to the rocks.
Your White Domes image really shot
up the charts. Okay, I'll let you
go! I need to get some more photos
together. Best wishes, Melinda!!!

Thanks Larry! The color of the rock isn’t from a fire or anything like that. It comes from black manganese oxide in the sandstone. In other words, it’s very dark desert varnish, which is one of the interesting features found in Southern Utah.

Okay, great beta on that one. I need
to research my southern Utah geology.
Thank you kindly, Melinda!
