The Washerwoman is in the upper part of a huge monolith
on the the White Rim Trail. The arch has a span of
approximately 35 ft. and a vertical opening of roughly 85 ft.
From the intersection of the Potash Mine Road and the White
Rim Trail, it is about 13 and a quarter miles south. The
author took this photo in April of 2002 through the opening
in Mesa Arch (qv) using a 400mm lens on his Pentax 6x7. The
White Rim Trail is accessible either from the Shafer Trail
or from the Potash Mine Road. The Shafer Trail switchbacks
are pretty spooky (no guard rails), but the route is a lot
shorter than the Potash Mine Road. If using the Shafer
Trail, be sure to check at the Island-in-the-Sky Visitor's
Center before starting out.
