Photographer's Note

This is the walking track to Delicate Arch, one of the most visited sections of the Arches National Park. That tiny red speck on the horizon is the arch. Unfortunately I didnt have the 2-3 hours to spare to walk there & back. I did try a zoom shot, & may upload it later, or as a workshop. More info here:

"Arches National Park is a U.S. national park in southern Utah. It is known for preserving over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations.

The park is located near Moab, Utah, and is 119 square miles (310 km2) in size. Its highest elevation is 5,653 feet (1,723 m) at Elephant Butte, and its lowest elevation is 4,085 feet (1,245 m) at the visitor center. Since 1970, forty-three arches have toppled because of erosion. The park receives 10 inches (250 mm) of rain a year on average."
