Sunrise at Arches National Park, Utah 22 Oct 2017
About this photo
Turret arch glows orange as the sun rises over the scenic Arches National Park in Grand County, Utah, USA. There are over 2,000 natural sandstone arches across the 76,679 acres (310.31 sq km) expanse that makes up this National Park. Pinnacles and fins also exist throughout the vast area.
Turret arch is a relatively young and small arch carved out of a large fin, 100ft wide. As it gets older it will grow, possibly connecting with the smaller arch to its side. Visitors can hike through the National Park along the numerous trails, taking in the sunrises and sets and marvelling over the unique land formation.
