Photo ID: GC_Dview4915.jpg   View of Desert View (7,438 ft high) on the East Rim of Grand Canyon National Park on a fairly cloudy day with thunderstorms passing through and proving to be quite beautiful with the interplay of light and shadow. The overall effect is a 'softening' of the Canyon. In the foreground is rust Hermit Shale rock from 280 million years ago. The background shows the Grand Canyon's top four geologic layers: FIRST TAN LAYER includes white Kaibab Formation (270 million years ago), gray Toroweap formation (273 m.y.a.) and yellow Coconino Sandstone (275 m.y.a.); SECOND RUST LAYER includes rust Hermit Shale Formation (280 m.y.a.), pinkish red of the Supai Group (315-285 m.y.a.) and red Redwall Limestone (340 m.y.a.); THIRD GRAY LAYER includes light gray Temple Butte Formation (385 m.y.a.), dark gray Muav Limestone (505 m.y.a.) and light gray Bright Angel Shale (515 m.y.a.); and, FOURTH RED AND BLACK LAYER includes red shale, limestone and dark lava of the Grand Canyon Supergroup (1,200-740 m.y.a.). THE GRAND CANYON BEGAN when the Colorado River started carving through the rock layers 5 or 6 million years ago.
