  1. Thank you, they are beautiful, aren’t they? The colours are due to the various iron compounds in the rock and their different stages of decomposition.

  2. Thank you, Steve. Yes, I go back to the site frequently. There is always something new to see as the rocks sometimes crumble and fall, or they weather out to reveal new patterns.
