Curving Cliff Face

Even though the top of the Grand Canyon walls and the Colorado Plateau are both even and almost form a straight line, the cliffs below the Rim are convoluted and bent by the tremendous tectonic forces that raised the North Rim to over 8000 feet in some places. Just as the sun was going down, I walked by this overlook into the Canyon and saw the curved walls of stone off into the distance. It is a wonderful sight.
