Navajo Sandstone In Video

In my previous post of Monday, January 6th I wrote about searching out the Liesegangen banding in the Navajo Sandstone of southern Utah. Walking around near Yant Flat outside St. George we found it easy to become mesmerized by the rocks as the afternoon sun slipped slowly behind the hills.

Liesegangen Banding In The Navajo Sandstone

An interesting feature of the Navajo Sandstone is the presence of Liesegangen banding, those ribbons of rustiness that swirl and whirl so dramatically across often vast expanses of rock.
