"Dune Pool" Snow Canyon State Park, Utah By Robert Park

Via Flickr:Dune Pool Named after Lorenzo and Erastus Snow, who were early Utah leaders. It contains some of the most beautiful petrified dunes on the Colorado Plateau. All of this is set against a stunning backdrop of towering sandstone cliffs in red and white, and peaks and valleys of jumbled black lava rock interspersed with serpentine sandy washes carved from the red and white Navajo sandstone in the Red Mountains. I have visited here many times after rains and the shallow pools create incredible variety amidst the swirling petrified sandstone dunes. Location Snow Canyon State Park, Utah © Robert Park
