|Cedar Breaks National Monument sits at the top of the western edge of the Colorado Plateau at over 10,000 feet elevation. The sedimentary rock visible at Cedar Breaks is limestone, known as the Claron Formation. The colors visible in the rock come from various amounts of oxidized irons (red and orange hues) and manganese (purple hues). Cedar Breaks receives approximately 15 feet of annual snowfall. The snowfall pictured occurred in early October, 2008. |
