Navajo Dome; Ancient Sand Dunes

At left of this image is part of "Navajo Dome", one of the dramatic geologic features found in the Capitol Reef National Park, Utah, USA.. This park is so named for the white sandstone "domes" and cliffs of the Navajo sandstone formation that are reminiscent of the United States Capitol building in Washington, DC. Navajo Dome is the eroded remnant of buried ancient sand dunes that were cemented over time by minerals then subsequently, exposed by erosion over the past millennia.
