Colorado Plateau Site of the Day

It's been a depressing week, I guess. Two angry rants in a row, about geologic tragedies and stupid politicians. I am finding solace in that a wonderful field trip is coming up in June, and I will be on the Colorado Plateau after a too-long absence of three years. Can you figure out where this photo hails from?

One point for guessing the park or monument. Clue: The site made the list on Callan Bentley's Scary Map du jour

Two points for describing the stratigraphy, age and environment of the formation.

Five points for identifying the trail, because I remember it being one of the tougher trails I have ever hiked, and I don't think many people have been on it. But what a payoff at the end!

Have a nice evening!
