Weathered Sandstone

Sandstone is far from homogeneous. It is formed in layers of sand and mud with differing conditions. When the rock becomes exposed to the elements, it weathers in a variety of forms and patterns. One of the most enjoyable things about walking around in northern Arizona is looking at the sandstone and the sand that comes from it.


  1. Your photo tells me an interesting element every day. Thank you!

  2. The elements make nice homes for little critters.

  3. I don't know what it is about weathered sandstone, but it soothes my soul.
