Mesa Arch

The short hike to Mesa Arch is likely the most popular trail in Canyonlands National Park. The easy hike leads to an impressive rock arch on the edge of a steep cliff, which offers stunning views of Buck Canyon below, and the La Sal Mountains towards the east. This is also a very popular spot to witness the sunrise. Here are a few shots of the arch and the views from the edge:
