Sunrise at Landscape Arch, E105664
"Sunrise at Landscape Arch"<br />
Arches National Park, Utah<br />
 2010<br />
	Naturalists at Arches National Park have cataloged more than 2,000 arches, ranging from the minimum opening of three-feet to the largest, Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base.  The most optimum time to see this marvel of nature is at sunrise.  A solitary observer can appreciate this thin span as the first warm rays of the morning sun strike the arch.  A short way down the Devils Garden Trail, you will come to the remains of Wall Arch that  succumbed to gravity in 2008.  One wonders how much longer Landscape Arch has on this relentlessly changing earth. <br />
