God amazes

This rock formation was one of the first sights we visited while hiking in the Valley of Fire State Park. The shape of Fire Wave rock is a result of sandstone being eroded by wind and water. The different colors of sandstone are due to oxidization of iron (red) and manganese (pink). The presence of silica and/or bleaching of the sandstone caused by years of contact with water makes the sandstone white.

God amazes with the intricacies of creation.
