Vermillion Cliffs Aerial

Sandstone-capped escarpment of the Vermilion Cliffs tumbles 3,000 feet to the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona. Vast scale makes the Colorado River's down-cutting appear as a series of narrow, winding incisions near Marble Canyon.  The remote 293,000 acre monument features a majestic grand terrace rising at the edge of the desert of the Paria Plateau.
