Although I had heard of it, I had never been...until recently.

I have been fortunate to be able to spend some time wandering here the last few weekends...

It had been way too long since I was last out. Sitting here viewing these Texas river expeditions week after week drove me crazy :D ...as the weather began to settle, I made a dash.

Carlile Shale?

Yes, along with the Dakota Formation, Greenhorn and Graneros, Semilla, Juana Lopez, D-Cross, El Vado and Niobrara Shales. ;) If you like Upper Cretaceous rocks, it's a fun place to visit.

Is there a name for the red layer of rock in your photo or is it just pretty? Also, what about the large formation in the second of the new photos? Thanks. :)

The red layer of rock is just pretty...a "vein" in a larger sandstone body.
