Red Canyon




Plate 140X. Red Canyon 1964-2003 Viewed north at the mouth of Red Canyon. The Sevier fault separates the dark-colored basalt on the left from the light-colored Wasatch limestone, or Bryce formation, on the right. Wyoming big sage appears unchanged but juniper, pinyon, and ponderosa pine have increased.
