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.

Sedona - 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.

To learn more about how the rocks were formed, you can check out ArizonaRuins.com.

I hope that everyone has a great week!
