014: Great White Throne
When driving the scenic drive in Zion National Park, you can clearly see a massive white rock towering over the trees. This monolith, believed to be the world’s largest sandstone monolith, is called the Great White Throne. In 1916, when Methodist minister Frederic Fisher visited this region, he exclaimed: Never have I seen such a sight before. It is by all odds America’s masterpiece. […] This mountain is the Great White Throne. The two km high monolith, consisting of red navajo sandstone at the base and white navajo sandstone at the top, provides inspiration for scenic landscape compositions of Zion National Park.
