Layer upon layer of sandstone, siltstone and clay is what makes up the Tepees in the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona, USA.

While the white layers are sandstone, the dark layers have been shaded by high concentrations of carbon. The bands of dark red are layers of siltstone which have been stained by iron, whereas the base is tinged red by iron oxide. The grey cap of the tepees is made from clay.
