On a visit to the desert wonders of southern Utah, I decided to drive to the eastern edge of Nevada to visit this place of weathered formations. The material being sculpted by wind and water erosion is our old friend bentonite. You've seen several examples, on these pages, of that clay/weathered volcanic ash blend that soaks up lots of water when it rains becoming very sticky and slick.
It was dark and very cold when I arrived at this overlook before sunrise. I poked around in the dark to find a spot see the sunrise.
