USA Balanced Rock

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Balanced Rock is one of the most popular features of Arches National Park, situated in Grand County, Utah, United States.

The total height of Balanced Rock is 128 feet (39 m), with the balancing rock rising 55 feet (16.75 m) above the base. This rock is the largest of its kind in the park, weighing approximately the same as an icebreaker ship or 27 blue whales. Balanced Rock had a smaller sibling named “Chip-Off-the-Old-Block” that collapsed in the winter of 1975-1976, the eventual fate of this feature as well.

Photography Tips

At sunset the colors on the rocks are amazing. I took my photo with a 70-200mm lens @ 200mm f8
