Cool arch!

Haven't seen this one before. Which side of the Portal Rd. is it on, if you don't mind sharing?
I really like the shot.

Re: Cool arch!

It's on the right side of the road. On your way to the other arch, it's about half way up the wash, on your right,up on the top of the hill. You can actually see it from the road at one point. PM me if you'd like more details.

Re: Cool arch!

If you look closely, you can see the road out there, and that pile of rocks is on the right side of the road on the way up

Re: Interesting shot

Not too large. Maybe 12-15 feet wide at the base of the hole. It is the lesser known of two nice arches in the area. Geologically, it's a neat area. If you ever get the chance, you should visit. It is a beautiful area. I'll buy you a beer!
Cheers!

Re: Stunning!

Thanks danny-boy! It was taken just after sunrise, so the sky was still pretty dark behind the peak.

Another nice one

Of course, it's a little unfair when you have such easy subjects to work with (kidding)!

Thanks Bob!
Yeah, it's awful having those peaks so close. They always cooperate too!
