Wandering on the slickrock

There are places on the Colorado Plateau where you can walk for miles on nearly level sandstone. This phenomena is collectively called slickrock. There are vast areas where the rock makes an uneven paved surface and nothing grows. Mostly the slickrock is broken into huge sections and in the cracks between there are trees and other plants growing. This is a bizarre world of canyons, cliffs and rock outcroppings all made of sandstone.
