Photo: Delicate Arch, Arches National Park

It is quite something to travel to the iconic places in the world, and discover that they are in fact larger than life and not small enough to fit on a license plate (which isn’t surprising but I never appreciated how big Delicate Arch would be- I’m on the far left to scale!).

It’s quite something else to do it in winter, when the thousands of daily visitors are replaced by a few dozen so you discover the solitude of the desert in spectacular places.  The snow is more a lovely decoration for it all.

Let the recap of my Utah desert road trip begin…

    Wow! Good that you told us you’re in the picture because I hadn’t seen you and before I was thinking “Yeah, it’s nice… but…”, but now with seeing you next to it it really seems huuuuge!

    • Haha I know- probably the only famous iconic thing in the world where it’s actually WAY bigger than you think it is!

      It’s actually not my favorite arch in the park though as it’s been seen so many times- will be posting a LOT more of them in coming days. 🙂

  2. Funny, I was thinking, “Wow… she is really small compared to that normal sized rock structure.” 😉 BTW, are you wearing an eye patch?

  4. Amazing picture. Yeah the Arch has been seen so many tiimes, so much so that you might think it’s a regular sized rock. Now those who thought of the Delicate Arch that way can have a rethink with a pinch of respect for the photographers.

    Amazing photo by the way Utah National Park
