Some had the energy to clamber on the arch.
Below is Delicate Arch. It is a mile away, at least from here it is a mile to walk to it. All on the bus only went this far, but one man decided he would walk the mile. Unfortunately, he did not tell anyone and so he was missing when the bus wanted to leave. We assumed he had made the walk. The tour direction was angry and decided not to wait for him, but go to the next point. She was going to advise the ranger. Anyway, the man realised the bus had gone, so he caught a ride on another tour bus to the next sight and found us.
Below are scenes along the way.
If you have an explanation, I would love to hear it. If not, we will just have to accept that it is a genuine optical illusion.
I thought this might be the same one with a gap for cars, but it is clearly too high and the road doesn't go that close. Although the shape looks the same, the top is a bit different.
I like this picture.
The sun caught it just at the right angle.

You can see that the road goes quite a distance from it, and not underneath.
If you doubted it, here is the road, and it is not underneath it.
Take a final look at the picture, and be amazed.
Just in case you did not see it.
Below is the right one. See the top is a bit pointed. On second thoughts, the other one is a bit pointed too. Is it the same one from a different angle?
The road definitely does not go underneath it.
This is the first place we got off the bus. We walked across this terrain to the arch below. It was very hot, but as it was early in the morning, it was not as hot as it was in the afternoon, about 103F.
Now, I want to look at the one below again and compare it with other pictures. You would have seen it before in Roads, if you have been there.
Below is a rock group deep in conversation.
A few of us walked across to this arch.
This is the impressive entrance to Arches National Park
This is our next stop, but I did not have enough energy left to walk to the rocks.
