Tisha's and Princess Spires
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Zoom of Tisha's Spire (left - 5.7) and Princess Spire (right - 5.10) from 4,800-foot Cibola Pass.
From this angle, Princess Spire is supporting a full grown juniper tree on
her left shoulder.
Notice the "cross-bedding" of the courser grains of sandstone cutting
through the two spires.
These spires are accessed from the opposite (east) side via the 2.2-mile Wilson Canyon Trail. A side trail leads up to the base of the spires atop a red-rock ridge between Steamboat Rock and the south face of the Accropolis.
