Sinking Creek Arch Complex - Arch 8 - Right Shelf Arch





Shelf is located deep into the arch at the roof next to a window. 10 arches, 4 windows all within about 50 ft of each other. Spectacular geology though underwhelming photographically. Two larger main pillar chambers. The left pillar chamber has two pillars though small in height and span, in length both are over 4 ft and there is a window. The right Pillar Chamber has 3 pillars inside it, with a window and a shelf in the back. Just outside the chamber to the right there is a long 6 -7 ft tube that is about 6 in. x 6 in. in height and span as well as another small pillar with over 3 ft in span and another smalle window pillar behind it in the rock. To the far right at the end of the cliff is another window some some very small peep holes next to it. Though roadside, very little evedence of human visitaion though just around the corner there is spray paint on the cliff line.
