Sedimentary rock. Cross-bedded or Navajo sandstone. This sedimentary rock was formed by the deposition of successive layers of sediment, later compressed into rock. The cross-bedding (narrow lines) was produced by changes in the direction of the depository water over time. Photographed in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area, Utah, USA.
