Delicate Arch

Delicate Arch

Delicate Arch is a 65-foot 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. Interestingly, this arch played no part in the original designation of the area as a U.S. National Monument in 1929, and was not included within the original boundaries; it was added when the monument was enlarged in 1938. Behind the arch in the distance are the La Sal Mountains.
