NABSQNO 13S-253995-4078415. Crow Canyon Arch is a fin natural arch eroded through San Jose Formation sandstone. It is old enough that it has taken on many of the characteristics of a shelter natural arch. However, it is clear from its context, a series of fins, that it is best placed in that classification. Crow Canyon Arch is located about 13 miles east of Aztec, San Juan County, New Mexico. Access is via a complex of mineral exploration roads (dirt) stemming north from highway 173. The arch has a span of about 27 feet.
