Delicate Arch

Thursday, January 2, 2014

You probably recognize this famous landmark:

If not the best known arch in the world, Delicate Arch certainly qualifies as the most iconic rock formation in Arches National Park. There’s more to this relatively easy hike than just the arch: hikers will also pass by an old settler’s home, as well as a petroglyph panel left by Ute hunters several hundred years ago.

I believe this arch was made by man and is a link to our past. It's just not likely to be natural do to the proximity to the ledge. I'd like to see an aerial view with indications as to where other formations are and the directions of the view through this window.
