I’ve been to Arches National Park three times and have always walked to Delicate Arch. I love how you walk and walk and wonder where the heck that thing is. Then you turn a corner and – whoa -- there it is! One advantage of being old is that on the first hike with my wife there was only one other person there. The three of us sat under the arch and relaxed with fruit and cold water. The blue sky, white clouds, snow-capped La Sal mountains, and orange slick rock really made a beautiful scene.
