#Colorado #Plateau, #Utah. The signs of the rivers and weathering, mark in spectacular fashion this semi-desert land. 60 million years ago, the sea has disappeared and the crust sedimentary limestone and sandstone, was swept by winds, rain and extreme temperatures. The forms that originated among gorges, spiers and folds, have left the memory of ancient waves. The plateau has an area of 333,000 km square and touches four countries: Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.
