Honeycomb Cliffs

Wasatch Mountains - Big Cottonwood Canyon, Salt Lake City, Utah

To Get to the Honeycomb Cliffs:
Big Cottonwood Canyon > Brighton Ski Resort > Silver Lake > follow the trail to either Twin Lakes or Lake Solitude (We went to Lake Solitude) continue to Twin Lakes Pass, take a right (south) up the white limestone hills. This would be an awesome place to watch the sunrise, I doubt I'll ever get up here for it though, I like sleeping in.

This limestone is made of ancient corral/bone sediment
from when this spot was under the ocean, (Eons before Lake Bonneville)
I wonder how much time it took to lay down this section?
