Photographer's Note

We were here just before sunset, hoping to see the last light shinning on the Arch, the sun dip into the dark cloud and never appear again. But the sky makes interesting background and it is still an amazing place to see with or without the sun shinning at it.

Delicate Arch is a 52 feet tall freestanding natural arch located in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.

It is the most widely-recognized landmark in Arches National Park and is depicted on both Utah license plates and a postage stamp commemorating Utah's centennial anniversary of statehood in 1996. The Olympic torch relay for the 2002 Winter Olympics passed through the arch

At most time of the day, there will always be people standing under the arch trying to take pictures with it. If you want it without people, you will have to be somewhat patient and or go at sunset, where most people wait around to take picture and no one will walk in there without being yell at.
