Another view of Balanced Rock. The rock on top is the size of three school buses. Balanced Rock had a companion – a similar, but much smaller balanced rock named “Chip Off The Old Block”, which fell during the winter of 1975/1976.
At the base of Balanced Rock.

Beautiful La Sal Mountains in the distance, which still had snow on them in late June.
Shadow play. One of the ways to get all four of us in the picture!
