Nearby stand the wall of the Vermilion Cliffs. The Vermilion Cliffs are considered to be the second step in what forms the Grand Staircase in the Colorado Plateau. They are in the physiographic High Plateaus Section and Canyon Lands Section of the Colorado Plateau Province. The red colored or Vermilion hills provide a different hue to the journey and you cannot take your eyes off the gorgeous landscape of this place. In spring, this area is covered with beautiful spring flowers.
