East Fork 45 x 15

This monolithic rock towers above the east fork of the Virgin River. We can see some of the rivers course on the right hand side as it meanders along its twisted course, heading to join with its companion river in Zion Canyon. The river flows among diverse scenery along its path, here the canyon is only a moderate slope; whereas just down stream it travels through a steep canyon, where it is impossible to climb. The rock face above displays all the colors found in these areas. Rocky Mountain sheep roam this area and can be seen in large herds, if the hiker is fortunate.
