Why I love it here it is: the most iconic arch in the world. It’s a 1.5 mile uphill hike to the arch and the views are worth it. Set on the edge of a big sandstone bowl overlooking the La Sal mountains in the distance, this is a place you won’t forget. The lighting is best at sunrise or sunset.
Avoid this location if you don’t want to hike 3 miles round-trip. It is also usually crowded and we’ll be in a bit of rush to fit in your shots before the crowd mobs us.
