IMAGE COLLECTIONS     Arches National Park

Time for a full moon and I had a vision of placing it with Delicate Arch. With little personal experience on where to expect the moon relative to Delicate Arch, I hiked up the first evening with no luck. Waking early the next day, I duplicated the hike this time in the dark of morning and was rewarded with a view of our natural world at its finest.

Delicate Arch is the premier arch located inside Arches National Park. The red sandstone so prevalent in the Moab, Utah area is most impressive at Arches. As with most National Parks, Arches can be crowded. To fully enjoy the grand vistas and incredible rock formations, choose the time of year and time of day carefully. Perfect days are possible.
