HUNTO AND THE WASHINGTON COLUMN.

On the north aide, and eight miles from the lower end of the valley, is Hunto, (the Watching Eye) or the Royal Arches, a wall of rock nearly vertical, from the side of which a large mass has fallen down, leaving several arches several hundred yards long, horizontally, the brows or arches projecting out in some places seventy or eighty feet. Just east of Hunto is the Washington Column, a wall nearly vertical, 2,400 feet high. The photograph was taken a mile off, in a south-westwardly direction.
