Balanced Features – Parashant

Balanced Features - Parashant

Along the Colorado Plateau a wide variety of features distinguish the landscape. Virgin Mountain stands above the plateau holding the Pakoon Basin upon its rippled southeastern slope. North of the Grand Canyon National Park and east of Lake Meade, these features mark the Grand Canyon – Parashant National Monument. The monument’s canyons cut through the warm velvety surface of the plateau to reveal defined layers of earth that contrast with the rippled slopes above and provide balance to the scene.
