The park is a vast expanse of brilliantly colored swirling sandstone. There are also hundreds of arches and probably thousands of smaller “windows” scattered throughout the park.

Photography Tips

If you’re unable to locate this exact spot, don’t worry. One could spend hours wandering the surrounding slickrock for endless photo ops. Early morning/late afternoon works best. Even better after a recent rain when the sandstone’s color is even more saturated. Avoid hiking in the summer when temperatures routinely range around 110°F/43C.
