More than 100 million years ago the Colorado Plateau located in the corner of four States: Utha, Arizona, New- Mexico and Colorado. The name of the desert was given by the Colorado River. His water runs now buried so deep in the ground that there is no chance to use this wet to irrigate the surface. In terms of evolutionary changes the power of elements can be seen in sand –stone-formation. Dramatic formed by erosion then collapsed into just sand and soon being formed again by pressing into dunes and sand-stone –formations. In this Part of the desert the accumulation of bridges and bows build by nature is unique in the whole wide world.
