Delicate Arch in Arches National Park

Delicate Arch is a remarkable freestanding natural arch and the signature landmark of Arches National Park near Moab, Utah, USA.

Surprisingly, the 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 monument boundary. It was added when the monument was enlarged in 1938.
