We call this Monte's hoodoo and I am not sure of its official name but will go with naming it after a friend that climbed nearly to the top and bacame stuck. This blue sky against the red rock and scrub oak and cedar trees is on the sand flats road near the cabin. Visitors enjoy the views of hoodoos as they travel up the sand flats road. The cabin sits just to the right and behind this formation on top of the Wilson Mesa. Because the cabin is on a downhill slope this formation is not visible from the cabin but both are visible in the same frame when taking a photo from across the meadow up on the sand flats road on the other side of cougar canyon.
