Peering through Mesa Arch. Canyonlands NP, Utah

The short hike to this wonderful vista is well worth it. Mesa Arch is better known as a site for sunrise photography. Our timing on a whirlwind tour through the region had us pulling into Island in the Sky in the afternoon, so sunrise will have to wait for another trip. There was just a hint of red underglow on the arch that helped to form a natural frame of the scene beyond.
