Leaving Albuquerque

Leaving Albuquerque, I was glued to the airplane window, of course, with my camera at the ready.  Slowly this scene came into view.  It is a mesa that has been eroding for, I am guessing, millions of years.  The gray layer on the top of the mesa was the last layer to be added, and as it is eroded over time, it reveals the orange and red layers beneath it.  It is such an organic looking thing that it looks unearthly.
