Sun and Moon from Glass Mountain
Ref.#98 9697~ Sun and Moon from Glass Mountain, Capitol Reef
Sandstone monoliths, dubbed the Temple of the Sun and the Temple of the Moon, tower over the desert flats of Cathedral Valley in Capitol Reef National Park. The foreground is from the top of Glass Mountain,selenite crystals that gleam and glitter in sunlight. In evaporating seawater about 165 million years ago, initially buried in sediment, the gypsum gradually percolated upward via faults and accumulated in domes like Glass Mountain.
