"Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep ?"
Balanced rock on a sandstone fin, near North Park Avenue
inside Arches National Park, Utah


I always thought this was Sheep Rock, because it (remotely?) resembles the head of a Bighorn sheep.

"You were wrong, Grasshopper!"

Early morning hours inside Arches NP is time very well spent.

Maybe they do in this movie

That’s not Sheep Rock. This is sometimes called Towel Head. I know, the name isn’t politically correct, but that is what some people call it.

Melinda, this formation is called 'Queen
Nefertiti'
or "Unjoined Rock."

The formation to the lower right is called 'Sausage Rock' or "The Popsicle."

Here's a LINK.

Thanks Larry, I suppose some of these formations have different names since they are not official. You can see a resemblance from a photo of Nefertiti

No, thanks to you !!!

I'm sure Queen Nefertiti is very deserving of
a landmark named in her honor.

Geez, wonder what I'll learn next on SP ???

I know. I was going to say something about Bladerunner but Melinda beat me to it. Guess I'll just have to be quicker next time. :)

Yes, you will. I've never met Melinda in person, but in all due respect I would speculate that she can be fast when she chooses to be.
