Tour of Utah, Stage 6 (Blue Hills)

 Tour of Utah, Stage 6 (Blue Hills)   

Moon-like landscape taken to extreme, absolutely grandiose scenery as the Tour continues to ’Capitol Reef National Park’. All the rocks of the Upper Blue Hills are part of the Mancos Shale formation, geologically more recent than most other parts of the Colorado Plateau. The top of the buttes and mesas is formed of the resistant Emery sandstone, overlying the Blue Gate shale which is particularly hostile to plant life and forms the stark bluish badlands that line much of the highway west of Hanksville.
