Warm biscuits anyone? When we travel to southern Utah, we always expect to be dazzled by red walls, goblins, arches, and monoliths, but the hill shown above gave us quite a giggle. This outcrop of Navajo sandstone has been weathered over thousands of years, forming cracks that give the impression of hot biscuits just out of the oven. Sandstone is essentially cemented sand grains and is quite susceptible to erosion by wind and rain. Photo taken near Boulder, Utah with a Canon EOS 20D on June 6th, 2006.
