Tepees in Petrified Forest

These tepee formations are located in Petrified Forest National Park, AZ. The white layers are sandstone. The cap is clay. Darker layers are caused by high carbon content; dark reds are iron-stained siltstone. Reddish layers are caused by iron oxide, which is also called hematite (Source: NPS park brochure). Imaged in December 2009.

I was in Capitol Reef last year, but headed south. I have some pic's of that posted on SP. I agree, formations do remind of each other. --mark d.

These are very surreal formations, I like them a lot. I saw them close to Page in Arizona, too.
