Four Corners Furtherance: Chimney rocks

There are several "chimney rocks" in America, most famously the ones in Nebraska and North Carolina.

The headline is a tease. The mesa on the left, which is located about five miles northeast of the Four Corners Monument in Colorado, is not that state's Chimney Rock, which is located east of Durango. But this rock should be a chimney rock. I haven't figured what it's called yet. The nameless-to-me peak is located on the Ute Mountain Ute reservation.

Capitol Reef National Park in Utah has its Chimney Rock, pictured on the right. This one consists of moenkopi shale.

Next: Butch Cassidy
