Snow Canyon State Park, St.George, Utah
Navajo sandstone was formed from blowing sand during the early Jurassic period. The Navajo sandstone can be either white or red, depending on the amount of oxidized iron in the rock. Because the veins of color don't follow the patterns of sand deposition, the iron must have entered the rock in water seeping between the sand grains.
