We’re Going to Moab- Delicate Arch

Hello, Hello! About a month ago, a group of friends and I spontaneously decided to take a trip to Moab! We had originally decided to go to a hot springs in the middle of the mountains, but after seeing snow, figured we would opt for the desert. Throughout the short trip, we went to several different areas in Arches National Park. Because I have so many pictures, I figured I would start a series on here highlighting my photos from each of the hikes. First up is Delicate Arch! For those of you who do not know, Delicate Arch is probably the most popular hike in the park. It is relatively easy to hike and the views are beautiful!

What makes Delicate Arch so unique is that it stands alone. Most hikes in the park are held up by walls of rock. However, probably over years and years of erosion, the arch now stands alone and really makes a statement as you turn the corner and approach it.

Fun Fact:

The whole area around the arch is quite slanted. When walking towards the arch, you are forced to walk at a side angle. Funny enough, my lens cap ended up falling off and down into the abyss and because it is so slanted, there really was no hope retrieving it. That sucker fell so fast, it was gone in an instant! During those quick moments of it falling down, the whole area turned into some episode of a sitcom, with about 40 people going “oooooooooohhhhh”. My friend and I just started cracking up as we watched it fall. It was definitely something to remember!

The colors of this park were truly this orange and red. Everyone says it is like you are on Mars and it really does feel like that. It is such a unique hike and I cannot imagine experiencing anything else like it.

That sums up my first part of my Moab series. I hope you guys enjoyed and get pumped for much more to come. Let me know what you think of Delicate Arch in the comments!

    Moab, beautiful, I have been to the Utah area, not hiking, as Taylor has in her series.. Seeing her photos of the area, I missed seeing what she has seen, and yes very glad it was part of the camera that fell, The area is so serine.. The terracotta Arches, remind you of Churches Temples.. Delicate Arches seen, but closer Hiking, than the area seen from afar.. Looking forward to more of the Series.. Angela!!!
