Arches National Park
#7 National Park/Monument for this trip
May 18, 2017
This was even more spectacular than I remembered from my 2002 visit!
"The Organ" dead ahead
First view of "The Gossips" and "The Sheep"
Gossips, Sheep & Organ
Onward to "Delicate Arch"
Appears on the Utah license Plates
I actually climbed the trail to the Upper Viewpoint (outlined in black above)
Back to the parking lot, I moved to another viewpoint from street level
The view from the Lower Viewpoint
Returning to the entrance and Visitors Center
That's actually "The Sheep" from the back.
Likewise, "The Gossips"

I had arrived here @ about 7:30 am - no traffic whatever. Good plan!
9:20 am exit - solid crawling line out to the main road, nearly 1/2 mile!
Don't worry folks, this will be well worth your wait!
