Natural Wonders

Thousands of years ago, rocky plateaus cradled and protected this lush depression.  Over the course of time, sandblasting desert winds have carved reliefs from the plateaus, resulting in a unique terrain.  Ranging in size from boulders to mountains, these sedimentary sculptures punctuate a dramatic landscape – a landscape where the Great Sand Sea converges with fresh water springs, glistening salt lakes, lush vegetation and significant biodiversity.
