Yep, it's The Castles. I flipped the OP's photo horizontally and it becomes very easy to see. Very cool formation.

Castles it is, curious as to where it was taken as I have never seen an image of them with trees creeping so high up the towers.

Still need to get back there myself, someone's recent TR with dead cows up the trail scared me off this year, I don't want to camp near that :shock:

Has anyone mentioned that this might be The Castles?

Oops, slow to circle back on this. I'm not certain where the photo was taken from. A friend asked me and I knew this site w/b quick with an answer.

I appreciate everyone's help/comments! Looks like a sweet spot to check out...
