The dark-colored Santa Clara lava flow cutting diagonally across the photo to the left poured over cliffs of the Navajo Sandstone in lava cascades up to 120 m high. Several lava cascades occurred around sandstone islands in Snow Canyon State Park. The colorful Navajo cliffs display a transition between underlying reddish oxidized and overlying whitish unoxidized rocks.
