NABSQNO 13S-510340-4302810. Pigs Eye is a fin natural arch eroded between adjacent (but tilted) bedding plane layers of Lyons Formation sandstone. It is in the Garden of the Gods city park in Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado. Garden of the Gods is also a National Natural Landmark. Although it is by far the largest natural arch in the park, and has an unusual name, it is often missed by park visitors. Pigs Eye has a span of about 15 feet.
