After an afternoon of hiking the other arches in the park, in 90-100°F heat, I just didn’t have the steam to make the three-mile trip to see Delicate Arch in person. Instead, I took the climb up to the viewpoint (which was enough!). This photo is across the Winter Camp Wash (a deep valley), about three-quarters of a mile away from the arch. Next time I’ll go early in the morning and make this the first stop!
