delicate arch

Millions of years of erosion exposed the 52 foot tall 33 foot wide Delicate Arch, one of the most famous Entrada Sandstone formations in the world. The arch is depicted on Utah's license plates and used as a gateway for the Olympic torch, which passed beneath the arch on its way to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Olympics. One of the best, most rewarding hikes I have been on!
