"A very easy walk to a large arch. True to its name, Skyline Arch dominates the horizon for most of the trip. When you get there, you can see where a mammoth boulder fell out of the arch on a cold November night in 1940, greatly enlarging the size of the opening. This essentially doubled the size of the arch." Read more

An easy little walk up to the arch. It is interesting to see the fallen rock from the collapse of several decades ago that doubled the size of this arch.

This was our last stop of the evening and the timing was perfect for great color. An easy walk to a nice arch, that becomes much better in the evening sunlight
