Geology of Zion National Park - Navajo .

The Navajo Formation consists of one rock layer, Navajo Sandstone. While the Navajo is a dominant rock layer across the Colorado Plateau, it is thickest in Zion National Park - 2200 feet (700 m) thick. Navajo is a cliff-forming sandstone, but soft and easily cut by flowing water. These somewhat contradictory characteristics result in the formation of dramatic canyons.
