Yes, we're talking 250 million years of
geologic time in this picture. Blowing sand
millions of years ago helped to build this
place. Rusted iron molecules give the stone
its red colour.
Redstone Peak looms in the background.

It was then I knew I'd had enough,
Burned my credit card for fuel;
Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand.
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth,
And my suitcase in my hand.
How I lost my friends, I still don't understand.
(Neil Young - 1979)
