Collet Top Arch and Granary

Ever since learning of this scenic arch on the Kaiparowitz Plateau (from Jens Munthe's book) I have wanted to visit it. We learned that the Collet Top Road was all right so we took our Ford Explorer up it. Low-gear four-wheel drive was needed here and there, but it was not too bad. This arch appears to be seldom visited. Finding it with the help of a GPS was fun.

The Anasazi granary is in perfect condition: not a stone out of place, which is amazing considering it was built 700 or so years ago and has not undergone any restoration, I believe.

2009 Note: The Collet Top Road is no longer passable. So one must take the alternative Smoky Mountain Road to reach this area.
