Erosion has exposed the coloured rocks and clay. Warmed by the setting sun it looks even more red.

When rain comes, there is a swallow lake reflecting the formation at sunset. I hear that really brings the crowds in. The large campground is overflowing.

That night it was only me and an adventurous Dutch Tourist, who drove his 2WD in.
