Sense of Humor

I saw this rock formation as we were hiking the Calico Tanks trail in Red Rock Canyon. I thought it looked like a shark head. It makes me think about God‘s sense of humor. I’ve heard that many of Jesus’s parables and sayings would have sounded humorous to the people of his time. A shark coming out of the desert floor definitely seems humorous to me. Of course, 500 million years ago, this area was under a sea!

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.
