There are big arches, little arches, and arches rarely seen by hikers as they are so remote. We saw many during our time here and these were some of our favorites.
On one of the most popular hikes we had plenty of company.... and encouragement to make the 3.3 hike to the awe inspiring Delicate Arch. I refused to allow myself to get discouraged along the way though at times it was difficult. It's not so much that there is a large gain in elevation.... it's that you go up and down the elevation gain several times.
Just when you think you have arrived.... you go around another bend and see yet another
We climbed those rocks.....
We had faced down the enemy of heat and fatigue...(Though I can't imagine hiking in this beautiful place during the heat of summer.)
We feel incredibly lucky to be here during the 75 degree weather of Spring)
To claim our prize.... we had arrived at the Delicate Arch. It was well worth the effort. I will never regret the climb and it will be a memory that we will always cherish.
If I had to choose Delicate Arch was probably my favorite.... but then why should one have to choose, I say enjoy the spectacular beauty of each one!!
