City of Rocks Sunrise

City of Rocks SP

The first rays of morning sun over the Cooke Range to the east light up the surrounding desert floor to the west. The "city" is a geologic formation made up of large, sculptured rock columns, or pinnacles, rising as high as 40 feet and separated by paths or lanes resembling city streets.
