I discovered this colorful sandstone pattern while hiking off-trail in Valley Of Fire State Park. If you've never been there before, you'd find the colors hard to believe - but really, they do look like that! I couldn't believe it myself - it looked like someone had dumped giant paint buckets on the rock and let it flow down.
