are a series of towers made of Cutler sandstone capped with Moenkopi sandstone and caked with a stucco of red mud located near Moab, Utah. The Towers are named for a miner who lived near them in the 1880s. The Tower is world renowned as a subject for photography and for its classic rock climbing routes.
The Towers lie just south of a larger mesa which they are emerging from on a geological time scale. The Towers are composed of three major fins of rock that run from the northeast closer to the mesa out to the southwest and into a desert valley. The fins are between 1,000 and 2,000 feet long and separated from each other by about 1,000 feet. Each fin contains multiple towers, a number of which have been named.
