July/August Cover Photo: Mile 60 on the Grand Canyon Colorado River float trip. This is the last of the Paleozoic clastic rocks exposed travelling downstream from Lees Ferry. This 700m exposure starts at river level with Early Cambrian Tapeats sandstone and continues up through the recessive Bright Angel Shale and thin Middle Cambrian Muav Limestone. The impressive upper cliffs are the Devonian Temple Butte Formation and Mississippian aged Redwall Limestone. Photo by Dave Robinson.
