Arches Series: Delicate Arch
Delicate Arch with La Sal in backdrop, Utah, May 2011
Unofficial symbol of Utah, Delicate Arch is beautiful and heavily sought after. The hike is moderately strenuous (especially since we were carrying all our gear) and one not to be underestimated. We started at around sunset and it took a long time (at least 45 mins) to hike up starting from the parking lot. Even at that hour (past prime) there was a huge crowd and I can only imagine what it would have been during sunset.
