14, 15 June 2009 - Kings Canyon
Carpark and plain The car park at the entrance to Kings Canyon; there is another parking area for larger vehicles off to the right. Wooded plains surrounding Kings Canyon lie beyond the car park
Sand ripples in rock Water ripples in sand or mud formed millions of years ago were preserved in rock then exposed when covering material was removed. These ripples, now on top of the cliff beside Kings Canyon, were formed when the area was part of a shallow sea.
Cliff face Another vertical face of coloured sandstone stained by water flowing down the cliff face.
