Living in Ohio, going to the sea requires some significant travel. However, our latest trip was to Sedona, AZ, and we learned that the sea helped to create the beauty of the red rocks.
Each of the different layers represented in the rocks owes much of its composition to the process in which the sea receded millions of years ago. For example, the third layer from the top, the Moenkopi Formation, consists of siltstone and mudstone deposited in what were once tidal flat areas.

I hope that everyone has a great week!
