JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. -- Matthew Gonzales captured a New Mexico Moment near Jemez Springs. "There's nothing like our precious landscape colors!" he writes.


Similar to tree rings, sedimentary rock layers can help geologists study how New Mexico changed over time. According to, the reddish color in some layers is created by oxidized iron that coats the mineral grains in sandstone, siltstone and shale.
