It’s not enough that Zion mountains and boulders and mounds of rock have all these different colors, they also have all these different textures.
There’s the usual big, cracked walls of granite (I don’t actually know what the rock is, but it’s probably not granite because of its color…but then, I’m no geologist).
Then there’s a dozen variations on the large-dripping-mudpie-look: some stack it, some push it to edges that are round, some push to edges that are broken, some run layers at angles to each other, some look like cow pies, and some look like checkerboards with cracks running horizontally and vertically.
Ohhhh, some have colors that alternate like a cake, and some have layers that kind of flake off in lines. What a fascinating place!
