The mountains above received their cool colors naturally. In other words, they were not painted, dyed, or changed by man.

The cool appearance came from a process called sediment deposition. 

scoop tip: Sediment is solid materials that are moved from their original location by air, water, gravity, or ice to a landscape or field. Deposition happens when the amount of solids that are being carried becomes too heavy to move.
