Unusual view of Navajo Mountain
A highly unusual view of Navajo Mountain taken from the benchlands between Forbidding Canyon and Cathedral Canyon. Getting to the area where the photo was taken takes several days and requires climbing skills. April 9 2009.

See the 2009 Trip Log for information.

Awesome formation/information - you're the first person I've actually seen next to the landmark.

Nice to see the bit of snow on Navajo Mountain!

Excellante! Great to know the formation is
still there after 15 years. Looks like the
primary stages of the formation of arches
in the background to the right ...

Redbud Pass ?

Redbud Pass would be pretty far from the photo. This area is actually several miles west. It sounds like you have seen this formation? It's pretty cool.

Negative - perhaps I was there in another
life ???

I'm not asking for the exact location (by the numbers), I just concur with you regarding the "utter isolation" of this landmark. It's probably closer to Rainbow
Bridge than Redbud Pass ???

Bridge than Redbud Pass ???

As the crow flies, it's not too far from those places, but on foot it would be two days to that area. The Forbidding/Cathedral benchlands are much more isolated and harder to get to than Redbud Pass or Rainbow Bridge.

If you are interested, here is a map with the approximate location of the formation in contex with the positions of Redbud Pass and the Rainbow Bridge area. Look for the red circle on the lower left of the map:


It's a cool place to explore.

Yes it is ...I like the light brushing of snow on the ridge...you can see the maze of canyons below and around...What a great that must have been..

Yes, I think this is one of the best places to view the mountain. Around Bald Rock Canyon is a good place as well.
