Description

Artist's Palette is an area on a portion of the face of the Black Mountains noted for a variety of rock colors. These colors are caused by the oxidation of different metals (iron compounds produce red, pink and yellow, decomposition of tuff-derived mica produces green, and manganese produces purple). The colors and contrast are accentuated by an early-morning, passing rain storm.
