Artist's Palette, Death Valley, California

Artist's Palette is an area on the face of the Black Mountains noted for a variety of rock colors. These colors are caused by the oxidation of different metals (iron compounds produce red, pink and yellow, decomposition of tuff-derived mica produces green, and manganese produces purple).

Those mixed up minerals surely drove the early miners nuts

That's amazing...you'd expect that is where Photoshop would dress it up, but your shot is real. Very cool.
