I apologize for the simplicity of this post tonight but I can’t wrap my head around it.
The red rock in Utah, particularly in Arches National Park is petrified sand from the ocean floor.
I get that there was once an ocean here, as strange as it is now, being desert and all, but I can imagine that.
It’s the part of just how much sand was left behind to get pressed and pressured into rock that is now towers above where we now stand.
My mind is blown.
