Multi colored hills at Petrified Forest National Park

Believe it or not...when I took this photo what went through my mind was, "If these hills could talk" and then the information board for these hills said the exact same thing!! The distinctly visible layers in these hills (of sandstone, mudstone, ash, fossilized plants, etc.) can tell us how and when they were formed. So, I guess these hills can talk!
