Double O Arch in January


Double O Arch in January

This is Double O Arch in Arches National Park. Several of my students took my January 2018 interim course that travels to national parks in the Southwest. We teach students environmental ethics and natural history of the region. I took this photo while precariously perched on a narrow ledge. Ice and snow prevented us from getting any closer. These conditions and angle create a rarely seen image of this arch. We saw no other hikers on this trail.
