NABSQNO 13S-379850-4377280. Eagle's Eye is a small buttress natural arch eroded through a projecting fin of Minturn Formation siltstone. It is located along US Highway 24 just north of the ghost town of Gilmore, precariously perched on the eastern precipice of the Eagle River Gorge, in Eagle County, Colorado. Although small, Eagle's Eye was made famous by being a key design element in the Tucker Smith painting, "The Eagle River Canyon, Rio Grande Railroad," now part of the collection of the Carson Gallery of Western American Art in Denver. It has a span of about 8 feet.
