Wilson's Arch
Photograph by Marden Paul

This is called Wilson Arch. Itís in Highway 191 coming down from Moab in Utah. To get to the hole in the rock you climb up a non-existent path on slippery, scrabbled slick-rock. The really cool part occurs when you get to the top and look through the hole. In this case, you see a vast valley of vegetation and sand. Itís neat because from the highway, the view is blocked by the rocks and you have no idea whatís behind. Getting down is really fun if youíre afraid of heights or scraping your knees. The rock is covered with a fine layer of red rock dust which seriously limits friction and makes the descent much more difficult than the ascent.
