Friday morning we visited Skyline Arch. Near the northern most part of Arches National Park where the paved road ends and the last hiking trails begin, this arch seemed neglected by visitors. There were no other people there as we watched the sun come up and enjoyed the serenity of the place. As we wandered around, seeking different kinds of photographs, we noticed a lone hiker in the midst of the arch. His presence in the middle of the opening gives a sense of scale to the immense structure but he looks like he’s out for a morning stroll. We later discovered that there is access to the arch from the opposite side.
