Aerial Red Rock Mountains Dusted in Snow

Dusted in snow, the Grand Wash Cliffs in Arizona sweep toward the million-acre Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument, one of 15 national monuments created during the Clinton administration. The remote, rugged wilderness is a protective watershed of the Grand Canyon...The Grand Wash Cliffs juxtapose the colorful, lava-capped Precambrian and Paleozoic strata of the Grand Canyon against the highly faulted terrain, recent lake beds, and desert volcanic peaks of the down-dropped Grand Wash trough.
