13.75" x 13.75" framed. "The Entrada and Wingate sandstone cliffs of Colorado National Monument comprise the northern periphery of a massive uplifted area called the Uncompahgre Plateau, and evidence of that uplift can still be found here in places such as this. This formation sits at the mouth of Monument Canyon, and clearly shows how the layers of sandstone bent and contorted under the pressure that pushed the plateau upward over millions of years. It also happens to catch the light of winter sunsets in just such a way as to dramatically lift the spirits of intrepid landscape painters who brave the cold to go enjoy it." - Stephen C. Datz
