The Perfume Bottle

The spire portion of this formation is the most delicate  spire in Echo Canyon. The photographs in the first row were taken in the late 1860's, Those in the second row were taken in the fall of 1998 and those in the third were taken in June of 1999.  Comparison of the spire from 1860 to 1998 shows considerable weathering. Finally, in the second week of June 1999 a strong storm blew it over.
