Sinbad Member Southern San Rafael Swell

Hondoo Arch. Limestone of the Jurassic Carmel Formation holding it up above the Navajo Sandstone, Kayenta and Wingate cliffs below, Varicolored Chinle below, and the upper part of the Moenkopi at the base.

Yellowish Sinbad Limestone on the other side of a fault, the gray fossiliferous base seen below the upper dolomitic beds.

It is hard to separate in this view, the Sinbad is in the middle, between red beds.

Gray beds on both side of the canyon
