This is a view of Delicate Arch at Sunset as a spring thunderstorm passes through the area. Delicate Arch is located in Arches National Park, which is just north of Moab, Utah. The geologic Entrada sandstone layer that covers much of the park is ideal for creating natural arches over thousands and millions of years, through a combination of wind and water erosion, as well as the seasonal freeze and thaw cycle.
This arch, known as Bowtie, is located west of Arches National Park and Moab, on the hiking trail to Corona Arch. It is close to the Colorado River, which runs east to west through the region. Bowtie Arch formed from the same Entrada Sandstone layer that Arches is geologically famous for.
