Why I love it these double arches are some of biggest and most impressive in all of Moab. They are HUGE, amazing, and a very short walk from the trailhead. This location has nice open shade in the evening which is ideal for a sunset session. If you want beautiful, even lighting this is the place. It’s usually dry even during light rain or snow because of the mass of sandstone overhead. There is a secret spot away from tourists just around the corner where I often take people.
Not good for super busy weekends. Since it’s close to the road, this area can be very busy. It’s not a good location for sunrise shots because of too much direct light. The Park Service does not allow wedding ceremonies here, but photo sessions before or after a ceremony are fine.
