My Photos - Delicate Arch in Arches National Park
Delicate Arch
Delicate Arch is probably the most recognizable arch in the entire national park. This arch is so popular that it is on the design of some Utah license plates! Above is a photo of Delicate Arch taken during an my excursion in February 2009. I hiked on the Delicate Arch Trail from the Wolfe Ranch site, a reasonable 1.5 mile walk to the arch.

January 1, 2010 - After hiking the Park Avenue Trail and visiting Sand Dune Arch and Broken Arch, I hiked to Delicate Arch. In previous visits, I had always taken the standard route (Delicate Arch Trail) which brings a person in proximity to the point where one can stand under the arch. This time, I wanted to photograph the view from the upper and lower viewpoints.

Adjacent are two snowy Utah desert scene during my hike to the upper viewpoint.
