Saturday’s scene: Delicate Arch


Delicate Arch

While on a photo workshop in Arches National Park, Alan captured this sunset photo when the group took a late afternoon hike to Delicate Arch for a sunset photography session at the most famous arch in the world. Since the trail crossed over slick rock, this boomer chickened out due to her fear of heights. The 3-mile-round-trip journey only climbs 480 feet, but there is one section that travels along a rocky ledge for about 200 yards. Alan says that I could have made it as the trail is fairly wide. Photographers who stay for the very last hues of sunset, that’s when the best shots occur, must make the hike back to the car in the dark. It’s a boomer adventure that I’m sorry to have missed.
