Edmaier’s Secret is a natural sandstone formation located in northern Arizona, specifically in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area near Page, Arizona. It’s a hidden gem in the remote wilderness and is named after German landscape photographer Bernhard Edmaier, who first identified the formations from the air.
Edmaier’s secret is characterized by its intricate and vibrant sandstone patterns, carved over millions of years by the forces of erosion. The formations consist of layers of colored sandstone with unique textures, shapes and vibrant hues ranging from reds to oranges, yellows and whites.
These striking patterns are the result of different mineral compositions and sediment deposition over time.
