Our backyard in Southern Utah is considered one of the most unique landscapes in the world – the desert. Sandstone is the foundation of many types of desert landforms, such as arches, plateaus, and sand dunes. Once you can learn to interpret the natural forces that shape these landforms, you will be able to better appreciate this dry landscape, even down to the rocks.
