Description

Colorful Carmel and Entrada Formations are opposed in the Cockscomb along this particular stretch of the Cottonwood Canyon Road called the Squeeze. The once-horizontal layers were forced upward by colliding land masses along the East Kaibab monocline, resulting in mostly vertical and highly contorted forms. It is locally called "Candyland" for the bright colors, especially red and white.
