THE SWELL LIFE

The top of Ding and Dang Canyons opens into a wide valley exposing a kaleidoscope of colors splashed across rugged cliffs and canyons. Brighter colors, including red, yellow and orange, are apparent in rock deposited where oxygen was present. Dull colors, including gray, light green and purple, are the result of deposition with no oxygen present, possibly at the bottom of an inland sea or below a water table. Such places also preserved the bones and footprints of dinosaurs, according to the visitor’s guide to the San Rafael from the Bureau of Land Management. Photo by Bill Haggerty
