Arches National Park: Landscape Arch


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.

[tmt_info =””]This page is all about my first visit to Arches National Park, in 2004.  I returned in 2005 (in the middle of a rare rainstorm, no less!).  If you’d like to read about my second visit to Arches National Park, click here.[/tmt_info]
