Red Rock Canyon has several noteworthy features that are worth knowing before taking a tour. Below are some of the most common features that you’ll be able to see from up above:
These formations are over 180 million years old and stand 1000 feet high having been made through the lithification of sand dunes formed in the enormous desert.
Red Rock Canyon was at the bottom of an ocean basin over 500 million years ago. Limestone has formed as a result of the dead sea life that flourished during the time. You can identify limestone from its yellowish tint as opposed to the firey red rocks of the Red Rock Canyon.
The deep crimson red of the red rock canyon is due to the presence of iron oxide or hematite. This is the byproduct of iron being exposed to the elements causing it to rust turning the rocks all shades of red, orange, and brown leaving us with what we see now.
As always with every helicopter tour, we offer a special doors-off option for all clients who really want to immerse themselves in the nature and majesty of the canyon.
