Painted Wall Dusk
This image was taken in Black Canyon National Park in Colorado. Painted Wall is one of most beautiful Cliff in the park and highest cliff in Colorado. If the Empire State Building stood on the floor of canyon, it would reach slightly more than halfway to the top of the cliff.
The Patterns that inspired the name Painted Wall were created more than a billion years ago when molten rock was intruded into fractures and joints in the existing rock, then cooled and hardened. Unlike a painting, these patterns are 3-dimensional. If you were to slice off a section of cliff, and entirely different pattern would be revealed.
