Odd neighbors, cast in stone

To early pioneers of the mid-19th century, the middle pile of stones looked like a “Washer Woman” so that is what they named it. The structure to the right they named: “Monster Tower”. In this scene, these two odd neighbors made of stone, are seen from, and framed by, the famous “Mesa Arch”, a half mile away, in Utah’s Canyonlands National Park.
