The area around Arches National Park Utah up until about 700 years ago was home to the Freemont and the Ancient Pueblo people. The park is known for its wide open spaces, spectacular views and over 2,000 natural sandstone arches. Located near Moab, Utah the area has become an adventure sport and mountain biking mecca in the western United States. Sometimes in the morning the park is beautifully quiet and I was able to capture this image of the “North Window Arch” while reflecting on the ancients while watching this peaceful sunrise.

Beautiful photo!

Adam says:

Awesome photo. I have been out there and just feel in love with it. I was only out there for a few days and long to go back after seeing your photo. Thanks for sharing.

No, it was all pretty much arch if I remember right. Arches is a great park and Moab is a fine town too. I highly recommend both!

Heidi says:

Beautiful – this really does look like a little window into the sky! Great view.

Dorian says:

Andi,

They have a “knack” for that don’t they…. I can point and shoot but the whole framing part is still a mystery to me..
