Walls of Jericho

In Upper Cathedral Valley, along east-west cliff complex somewhat like a peninsula extending from Hartnet Plateau parallels the road. It was first called Wall Street for the supposed resemblance to the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Later, some began using Walls of Jericho in reference to visible crumbling. Regardless, it is one of the most impressive formations in Cathedral Valley.

Impressive formation.

Sharp walls and lines, looks like Ship Rock from this angle.

Re: Impressive formation.

I guess it does a bit. It is an awesome sight, and just one of many in the area. Not a place to miss!
