While driving through Arches NP, we pulled over numerous times to photograph. The structure they call the Tower of Babel is fascinating.

We stopped numerous times to take pictures of the Tower and the surrounding rock formations. We were lucky, or stupid enough to plan such a long day, that we were able to get views both in the morning and at sunset. Such pretty scenery.

This will be seen driving through the park. Pretty cool to see but typically for this park. There is a pulloff for photos.

The Tower of Babel can be viewed from the road. It is nothing exceptional for the area. It is best viewed close to sunrise.

This structure is quite massive and impressing. Nearby there are some similar rock formation but this is the most imposing. A good landscape and a good subject for some nice photos.

The sheer size and bulk make this spot memorable. Don't be surprised if you see climbers trying to reach the summit at any time of day.

The Tower of Babel cannot be missed when driving through the park. It is situated next to the Courthouse formations and is a very impressive geological formation in itself.

We parked our car and merely walked a hundred feet or so on rock to get a bit closer to this rock formation. It is so huge that it can be seen for a couple of miles.

Every rock in Arches is a red tower that you can't help but want to stop and stare at and the Tower of Babel is no exception. You can't help but look at it and wonder how such a structure came to be and the...More
