Favorite thing: Different sculptures are formed where different chemistry is involved in the layers.
The upper layers of white fresh-water limestone is quite massive and it’s “missing” impurities makes it more resistent to erosion than the reddish silt and clay parts in the layers below.
In the picture, an example for this is seen – a close-up into Sunrise Point – alternating beds of carbonate rich (white) and carbonate poor (red) rocks, which are so characteristic for Bryce Canyon formation.
