Red Rock Abstract- Red Rock Canyon State Park, Nevada. 250 million years ago sediment layers that were once at the bottom of an ocean were raised up through tetonic plate action. Once exposed to the air, rocks in this former sea bed began to rust. Creating the red, and orange bands seen in the hills, and in the boulder group here at the base of Pine Creek Canyon.
