Delicate Arch by Jeff Burton. Delicate Arch is a 65-foot (20 m) tall freestanding natural arch located in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. It is the most widely-recognized landmark in Arches National Park and is depicted on Utah license plates and on a postage stamp commemorating Utah's centennial anniversary of statehood in 1996. The Olympic torch relay for the 2002 Winter Olympics passed through the arch. Because of its distinctive shape, the arch was known as "the Chaps" and "the Schoolmarm's Bloomers" by local cowboys. It was given its current name by Frank Beckwith, leader of the Arches National Monument Scientific Expedition, who explored the area in the winter of 1933-1934.
"It rained during the entire one hour hike up to Delicate Arch and I sat in the bone chilling rain for another hour. Just as I was wondering if this was all worth it, the sun broke from underneath the cloud cover to the west and lit the arch with a golden light making it definitely worth every step of the hike."
