Factory Sunrise VI

Factory Butte is a 6,302-foot summit in the Upper Blue Hills in northern Wayne County, Utah, United States, about 12 miles northwest of Hanksville and about 14 miles east of Capitol Reef National Park boundary. The approach and the base of Factory Butte are made of the clay/silt mudstone of the Mancos rock type, which erodes into sharp rills, deep gullies and badland-type rock (fine-grained clay/mud). The crown of the Butte is Mesa Verde sandstone, which erodes into sheer vertical cliffs.
