Short easy stroll to several interesting rock formations at the half way point down the Arches National Park main road. I climbed to the bottom of the rock 73ft easy climb Easy paved 0.3 mile loop walk to a huge 3600 ton boulder perched atop a spire support, typical of formations in Arches NP. Try to fathom how the rock got up there in the first place and how much longer it will stay, or if it will fall in the near future, similar to the fate of Landscape Arch further down the road.

Easy walk to the formation. Good views to the East as well. We caught glimpses of the clouds lifting off La Sal Mountains revealing fresh snow.
