A detail of an eroding bed of Hakatai Formation shale and mudstone near Hance Rapids on the Colorado River. This colorful formation caught my eye while I was at Moran Point on the canyon’s rim. It was deposited over a billion years ago. Wikipedia has more detail for those interested: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hakatai_Shale

Hakatai is the Havasupai tribe's name for the Colorado River.
