Looking down on NW camping...
Looking down on NW camping area from road that heads up to Cache Peak TH. There is no shortage of things to climb in the City of Rocks and it is a surprisingly scenic area. Notice the thunderheads starting to pop out.

I had a discussion with Radek on the similarities between the City of Rocks and Monte Limbara on Sardinia. From your picture the city appears to be much greener (different kind of green anyway)

If I'm not mistaken, the type of rock pictured
in the City of Rocks is granite, whereas the
rock composition of Monte Limbara (in Sardinia)
is entirely limestone and dolomite.

Sorry but you are mistaken. Monte Limbara is pure grey granite. Click the link and I think you'll agree ;-)

Love that area and this shot inspires me to visit it this year - will make it out there in the fall hopefully (kind of a crazy weekend outing from Portland.....but well worth it IMHO). Thanks for submitting Dean!

OK, Radek. Here's one I couldn't remember the name of. It came from the same area as the shot posted on this page. If you know it, let me know so I can add it to the caption. This area was so interesting. This little tower would have made a fun climb even for Bob and I.

hmmmm, sorry Dean I can't tell you what formation that is - I'm definitely no City expert though. Hopefully one of the Idhao SPers will kick in the info.
