Grand Canyon ID please
« on: May 22, 2018, 12:34:13 AM »

Is there a Grand Canyon expert here that can identify the two rock formations in this photo please? They are visible from Bright Angel Point on the North Rim. Do they have names? I know there are several "temples" in this area. Thank you.

Are you thinking of Brahma Temple and Zoroaster Temple?

Well there are a number of formations with "Temple" names, but it turns out the two in the photo apparently don't have that honor. I finally found the answer on this page...

Mousing over, I discovered the two formations, beginning with the one in the foreground, are Angels Gate and Coronado Butte.
