Arches National Park Panoramic Picture - Delicate Arch

SKU: ANP1
This panoramic photograph of Delicate Arch features a late-day view of Arches National Park's most famous icon. Delicate Arch balances at the edge of a canyon and can be reached via a three-mile (round-trip) walking trail. Water and ice, extreme temperatures, underground salt movement and 100 million years of erosion are responsible for the scenery of Arches National Park. Delicate Arch is carved from sandstone deposited during the Jurassic Period some 150 million years ago. There are more than 2000 cataloged arches in the area, including some of the most scenic arches in the world. In the distance are the snow-covered La Sal Mountains.

Arches National Park Panoramic Pictures

As a National Park in eastern Utah, Arches National Park is the location of over 2,000 cataloged natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, a 65-foot tall freestanding natural arch depicted on Utah license plates and postage stamps. Panoramic pictures of Arches National Park most commonly capture the Delicate Arch, as it is the most well-known of the arches within the park.

Early prospectors to the area nicknamed the rock formations the "Devil's Garden", but the scenery captured in today's pictures of Arches National Park were often given equally-creative names over the years. A trio of spires is named "The Three Gossips"; a free-standing column the "Tower of Babel"; and a cluster of rock formations the "Parade of Elephants".

Panoramic pictures of Arches National Park capture extremes in visuals, from the rich natural sandstone rock formations in stark contrast to the distant snow-covered La Sal mountains. The simple beauty of this U.S. National Park is remarkable for the extremes that led to its creation, with over 100 million years of erosion, underground salt floes and extreme temperatures creating the park visited by so many today.
