More incredible views of the LaSal Mountains, contrasted against rounded red slickrock.
You’ll find these views along the trail to Landscape Arch… which is the next stop.
Here’s a tip: bring a wide angle lens, or else you’ll never capture a decent picture of Landscape Arch. It’s incredibly wide, and due to the risk of collapse, the viewing area is limited. (The trail used to continue up underneath the arch, until a major chunk of rock broke off the right side, and crashed to the ground, several years ago.)
[tmt_info =””]From Landscape Arch, you can continue on to Partition Arch, Navajo Arch, Double O Arch, and Private Arch. [/tmt_info]
In the interest of time, this was my last long journey down a trail to see an arch. I went back into Moab (I needed to buy more digital memory for my camera), then headed on to Canyonlands National Park.
