These "painted" rocks on the cliff of the Sierra Madre Range in Southern Wyoming are actually colored by lichen. The outcropping itself, with its crags and fractures, has photogenic qualities, but the greens and oranges of the algae-like growth makes it one of my favorite cliff shots. The trees and meadow in the distance give depth and perspective, showing how the rock face overlooks the canyon.
The Sierra Madre Range is actually a section of the Colorado Rocky Mountains just north of the Wyoming border and includes the Continental Divide. This photo was taken just a couple of miles from Colorado.
