We knew when we started that the best pictures were taken at this location were shot in the afternoon. However, if we were going to see Delicate Arch it was now or never - so Yasemin and I practiced our sun start photography and drank up the beautiful view. Our photograph does not do any justice to the amazing view.
Our walk back to the car was all down hill and much faster than the way up! We took a minor detour and saw examples of Ute petroglyphs. This petroglyph panel is believed to be comprised of historic Ute images since it shows people on horseback, and horses were adopted by the Utes only after they were introduced by the Spanish.
We arrived back at the car with an hour to return to camp, eat, rehydrate and meet at the Fiery Furnace hike!
