Arches National Park, III: Landscape Arch

The most impressive of Arches NP's arches, I think, is Landscape Arch, not only its great size and length but also its position and delicate nature. At 290 feet, it is the world's longest natural stone span.
For much of our time in the Arches/Moab/Canyonlands area,
we camped like regular Red Rock troopers, out on the desert,
in the dispersed camping area along Willow Springs road, off
route 191


















Moon sighting along the trail to Landscape Arch
















Us, with Landscape Arch behind us
















Closer up
















Standard view; almost the length of a football field
















The trail not taken: a "primitive" trail went on beyond
Landscape Arch

















Neither of us felt like the trail's exposure...
