The Tower of Babel

Tower of Babel

This imposing formation literally "towers" over you as you get out of your car at the main parking lot.  It's the highest formation in the park though, from some vantage points, it doesn't look it. 

It's height: a football field. 

This Tower is Red Lyons Sandstone at the North Face of North Gateway Rock.  It truly dominates the main parking lot. 

The Garden is spectacular even snow covered.  (Remember I said there were vantage points where the Tower of Babel didn't look like the tallest formation - here you go.)

Do you have a great story about the Garden. Maybe your first time here? Did you try to push over the Balanced Rock? Did your kids see a bear? What about selfies with a dinosaur? Or some nice photos?
