Pryor Mountains - Red Rocks

After wandering around in the high desert for a while we gave up looking for gizzard stones (our pockets were full enough) and climbed back in the Honda Pilot. We decided to continue on down the rocky backroad. ( This road is most definitely a 4 x 4 only road! Very rough.)
As we dropped down into a wide canyon, we were surprised to discover this scenic red rock vista.
It was like a Mini Canyonlands park. The red rocks are no more than 2 stories high at the most, but the eroded shapes are wonderful.

We estimate the size of this geological feature is about 20 acres.
I loved all the red sand on the ground!
