Cedar Breaks National Monument is a large amphitheater cliff in bright colors of red, orange and purple.
It lies east of Cedar City in the northern region of the scenery. The cliff was formed by erosion thru wind,
water and ice. Today erosion continues with a pace of about 2 inches every 5 years. Although it is called
Cedar Breaks, there are no cedars growing there but juniper trees. For a scenic flight to Cedar Breaks
National Monument best depart from Cedar City Regional Airport (KCDC) and head east. The scenery extends
south to Zion National Park and covers a large part of Zion Canyon and the Kolob Canyons area.
Zion National Park is another place where erosion of the Colorado Plateau formed the most beautiful colorful
stone formations of unique and wonderful shapes. There are nine different layers of stone visible in the park.
Most of them consist of sandstone. But there is also limestone, gypsum, siltstone, shale, clay and mudstone.
The Virgin River cut a spectacular and famous canyon thru Zion Park that is as narrow as 20ft and up to 2000ft tall.
High resolution versions of this scenery for FS9 and FSX (much sharper, but larger and multiple downloads)
are available at www.blueskyscenery.com/CNY_South2West5.html . The screenies are taken from the high-res versions,
so expect this version to be slightly more blurry.
