Delicate Arch

Arches National Park, UT


In my opinion, Utah is the most photographic state in America - with countless opportunities to view unique shapes, arches, mesas, buttes and vistas. But only one scene was chosen to be on the license plate of the state of Utah – Delicate Arch.

This 60ft tall arch is one of the most famous arches in the country and is one of the most iconic symbols of the American southwest. And as famous as Delicate Arch is, it is even more impressive in person. After the strenuous 1.6 mile uphill hike, you will find yourself wondering how this perfectly shaped arched (perched by the edge of a cliff) happened. This is truly a special place to visit and photograph.
