All together, the picture they formed looked like the Emerald Palace, a wall of tawny bricks that towered into the sky.
On one side, jagged rocks jutted out from the terrain in a Mars-like landscape.
Armed with glass bottles, we made our way off the beaten track and into a series of colorful hills.
We took in the incredible views: hills and valleys of purple, red, and yellow, a crazy cloud filled sky spread out above a vast canyon.
After a few steady ascents, we found ourselves facing an open area surrounded by towering hills of rock.
