NABSQNO 12S-676560-3950492. Window Rock is an adult pothole natural arch eroded through Entrada sandstone. It is located in the city of Window Rock, Apache County, Arizona. The city of Window Rock is the capital of the Navajo Nation and gets its name from this feature. Visitors are welcome to drive to the parking lot in front of the arch and view it along with the adjacent memorial to Navajo servicemen. However, please stay beyond the fence beneath the arch. In 1996, a slab of rock fell from the west abutment.

Vreeland listed Window Rock in his catalog as number 11-19 and reported a span of 65 feet.
