found some articles on interesting sandstone rock formations in Arizona. More of a curiosity than anything... check it out:
" The Wave is a sandstone rock formation located in the United States of America near the Arizona and Utah border on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes,
in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, on the Colorado Plateau. It is famous among hikers and photographers for its colorful, undulating
forms, and the rugged, trackless hike required to reach it. "
" The Wave is made of Jurassic-age Navajo Sandstone that is approximately 190 million years old. Scientists who study The Wave say that the old sand
dunes turned into hard compacted rock over the ages, calcifying in vertical and horizontal layers. Erosion by wind and rain has created the
spectacular landscape which appears now.
The soft sandstone of The Wave is fragile, one needs to walk carefully to not break the small ridges. "
