Arches National Park, Utah

Here are two photos of Delicate Arch at sunset on Decmber 3 in Utah's Arches National Park.

 

The opening beneath the iconic sandstone arch is 64 feet (20 meters) high and 45 feet (14 meters) wide.

 

The trail to Delicate Arch is 3.0 miles (4.8 kilometers) round trip with an elevation gain of 480 feet (186 meters). Those unable to hike the trail can see the other side of the arch at a significant distance (bring binoculars) from one of two viewpoints. One is accessible by a flat trail of only 100 yards (91 meters), while the other requires a walk of 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers) including stairs.
