Paint Mines Interpretive Park

No doubt this was also a place where these ancient people collected clay to be used as war

paint on their bodies, and on their horses. The weird stone shapes formed by water, wind, and erosion seem to shift size, position, and “expression” with the shifting light. The spires come in shades from creamy white, to orange, purple, gray, rust, and chocolate brown. The area is a protected site since the beautiful formations are fragile, as is the natural animal ecosystem that lives there. To preserve this delicate natural balance, dogs and other domesticated animals are not permitted on the land, nor are motorized vehicles, and no camping is allowed. Nothing in the park is to be disturbed, removed, or defaced. Read more: http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/paint-mines-interpretive-park
