'Cottonwoods along Fremont River.’

	The yellow autumn colours of Fremont cottonwoods (Populus fremontii) in the floodplain of the Fremont River form a stark contrast with the barren grey slopes of the South Caineville Mesa near the village of Caineville. The grey shale and sandstone is part of the Mancos Shale Formation and dates from the Cretaceous period. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
