This structure is quite massive and impressing. Nearby there are some similar rock formation but this is the most imposing. A good landscape and a good subject for some nice photos.

The sheer size and bulk make this spot memorable. Don't be surprised if you see climbers trying to reach the summit at any time of day.

The Tower of Babel cannot be missed when driving through the park. It is situated next to the Courthouse formations and is a very impressive geological formation in itself.

There're not a lot of specifics I can offer here, other than the Arches is packed with amazing bit of scenery like Babel, courtesy of millions of years of nature. See it!
