The cliff of white rock to your right is an outcrop of Upper Bandelier Tuff (approximately 1.2 million years old), the same rock mentioned at stop 1. If you look carefully at this rock, you will see rounded fragments of pumice and darker pieces of older rock. The older fragments were picked up by the tuff as it traveled across the landscape.
